The magic of snow

Snowflakes dance like white fairies of old
Each one a treasure to behold
Far more precious than spectrums of stone
For stones, anytime, the rich can easily own
The white season only enchants us a few months a year
The fairies, by magic, soon disappear
God, not man, decides whom these riches bestow
The rich of spirit know the value of silvery sheets of snow
Children charmed by snow's shimmering spell
Gaze at a snowman sculptured by winter's richest girl
Whose love moulded beauty into perfection
And whose childish joy shines from every section
Like a perishing goddess, winter's wind begins to sing
The purity of winter must mature to spring
From the snowman, molten light trickles into a stream
Before the children's eyes, vanishing into a dream
Why are their eyes shining with regret and pain?
Winter will return to cast its spell again
When their white season ends, they should then lament
For that treasure's lost forever, once it is spent

She owns the leaves frosted in jewels by magical rain
And the cricket's melodic songs of delight

Her gold fur's turned to white by enchanted light
And she detects another presence there
A deceptively bewitching tiger with fur fire bright
And as their eyes lock her world wails in despair

Now she keeps this world with another
Slave to her cub's continuous needs
Which chains her forever by the side of her lover
Her old free soul slowly chokes and bleeds
