Poem

Snow dawn

Tucked to bed, and snuggled down with holy hope,The farm in darkness sleeps, to dream the coming of the snow,Which, obliging, as if in answer to a prayer,Throughout the night falls floating in celestial silence,The accumulated mercy of so many feathery blessings down,Until the grace of Heaven's vast transforming crownRests lightly as a comforter upon the eager soul of that receptive ground.
