In view of our recent dump ot the white stuff, I thought this was appropriate
The Celestial Goose has moulted
Shedding down upon the earth
Soft and light, glistening white
Crystal feathers for rebirth.
Heavenly angels guide these feathers
Dusting trees and fields alike
Covering all God’s precious treasures
With a duvet, thick and light.
Every tree a thing of beauty
Every park a wonderland
Shining brightly in the sunlight
So adorned by Heaven’s hand.
Every pathway, every byway
Deep and white beneath our feet
Beckons searching souls to wander
Where the earth and sky do meet.
No one dares disturb the wander
Disarrange its beauty deep
For beneath this cosy splendour
All spring’s blossoms lie asleep.
