SNOW QUEEN…SNOW FAERIE

SNOW QUEEN…SNOW FAERIE

 

Snow Queen,  where have you gone?

Your train spreads across the whole lawn…

It’s fluttery white,

Shining at night

As though lit up by a faun.

Snow Faerie, where did you go,

Last night you were dancing as snow….

Fine flakes were wind-whipped

Daintily you tripped,

Upon the earth, lending your glow!

Oh what do these spectres mean,

Dancing among the evergreen…

Folklore attains depth

Rather than face death,

Among the hearts from which they’re seen!

 

–Jonathan Caswell
