Snow Beauty

The first snow of 2019 was beautiful.

The light dusting of snow on the trees brightened up the inside of our home.

The last leaves clinging to the lower branches of our maple received a chilly coating.

The First Snow

The pines are tasseled in white,
The cedars are laced with down,
The birds have quilted the lawn
With dainty stitches around.
Sometime while we were asleep
The clouds shook out their pillows
Covering Autumn’s drab remains
In sparkling, frosted billows.
