Starbird Hill





In darkness awakening,
First glimpse of snow white,
Brought beauty of wonderment,
Like shimmering diamonds,
'neath new morning’s light.

A frozen paradise waited.
Oblivious to the chill,
Warm mittens and overcoats,
We rushed to the sled race,
Atop Starbird Hill.

We flew down this mountain,
Blustery wind to frozen face,
On a sheet of ice and snow.
Oh, what fun we had then,
In our Starbird race.

And as the day closed,
Its beauty wouldn’t subside.
Sleepy heads in reverence,
Thinking of day’s events,
We gently closed our eyes.

In darkness awakening,
First glimpse of snow white,
Brought beauty of wonderment,
Like shimmering diamonds,
'neath new morning’s light.

Loved these lines:
"A frozen paradise waited.
Oblivious to the chill,"

Icy, thanks! I know you've read it before, but I had to put it here. I like reading this one over and over myself though. :)

Z, Funny thing, I just read about the ice challenge on your blog, after posting this. Instead of portray love as ice, I think I have portrayed love of ice. :D
