Melodious silence
Greets my morn
As icy prisms suspended at my pane
Refract the advent
Of a freshly fallen fantasy,
Mottled only by the
Whimsical fluttering of
A chickadee
On undaunted wing.

My reverie envelops me
In a vast blanket of
Glistening unsullied snow,
An illusory mask for winter's
Sallow earth beneath.

Still waters stand
In frigorific splendor as
Evergreens bough their ice-laden limbs
In Reverence
To the glacial touch of
Nature's enchanted wand.

E'er the day of the vernal crocus,
The chickadee and I
Shall appertain
This pristine dream
As one.

Nan, this was really beautiful....I agree with everyone on the freeverse thing from you!  Wow !
I really like all these new fonts, and the one you chose is one of my favorites, however, did you notice it makes it kind of hard to read?  Or am I just a goob with poor eyesight !!??  LOL  I kind of had to strain to figure out some of the words, although it was well worth it !!
