Heaven’s Bounty

Heaven’s Bounty

One cold and frosty night
In the soothing great outdoors
A single flake fell gently
And settled on earth’s floor,
One flake, but many crystals
With promises to fulfill
Quickly covered every surface
With heaven’s cold, white chill.
Like a blanket warms a sleeper
Tucked cozily in a bed,
It nourishes with icy fingers
As it hugs the parched dry spread,
The depth’s below soon snuggle
Absorbing while they can
For the sun will soon bring warmth
And seeds will sprout again.
