Lace Curtains

Oh gently, gently
Quietly lands the snow
Transforming every home
Into an ivory chateau

Too briefly, briefly
Are snowflake stars alive--
Would they hold our interest
If year-round they survived?

How stirring, stirring
That snow would not be white
Without the stayed reflection
Of heaven’s guiding light

So quickly, quickly
We oft soot winter’s art--
To step in mud is human;
From right we will depart

Hence treasured, treasured,
The bible verse well-known:
"Though your sins be as scarlet,
They shall be as white as snow."

Thus thankful, thankful
I laud this diamond dust:
Lace curtains against my window
God’s lessons, mysterious
