The Driven Snow:

The Driven Snow:

When all the world is swirling in falling white,
A hush appears upon the land,
The mountain winds are the only voice,
The speech that carries is the rise by inches,
The power gains momentum,
Unseen moisture rises steaming,
Dances with the freight train of pure arctic cold,
And the world is covered in a blanket of purity,
Leavened with just and peaceful respite.

This is the moment the eyes find stark yet beautiful,
Still verdant Spring will come.

All one needs is unbending faith,
Which is easy because you know,
The cleansing power of the snow,
And all the mighty struggle of your steps,
They lead not to death and darkness in the cold,
Nay the silence yields to nature's perfect miracle,
The birth of everything new...
