Beauty Without Sound

Updated on August 9, 2018


As Winter's Crystalline snowflakes all are coming down,

They spread across the landscape, without any sound.

As their only footnote, quietly do leave a carpet of white,

Our surprise in the morning, after the darkest of a night.


Snow without any color, yet so beautiful. of a majesty,

Soundless benevolence, is by Nature, to every entity.

As a warming treat, in the coldness, at this time of year,

A merry lift to each spirit, as Christmas, draws so near.


Each flake is so numbered as it lands upon the ground,

A few to flutter at first, then hundreds come falling down.

Makes scapes like in a magician's spell, before our eyes,

Soon to cover the rolling hills, every tree, to our surprise.



A stark contrast, red birds, the blue, makes our curiosity peak,

Every living creature still endures, their food, each does seek.

Brown deer still cross the meadows, to eat berries, take a rest,

Wild otters share streams, with beaver, rabbits hunger to crest.


As a fantasy in milk white, the snowflakes continue to fall,

A coating with its wintry elixir, the grasses, woodlands, all.

The precious Mother, under the Father's watch, in season,

Giving the roughened earth its smoothness, within reason.
