Where the great winds convene

their dreams to realise

In a world of snow mountains

cold and dazzling white

Hard as the piercing rays

searing the hour

of a winter sunrise.

Daylight begins to fade

and the dilapidated remains

of a desolate dusk

Begin to perish

in the silence of a crepuscular firmament

While the vernal skies

weep myriad flakes of snow

in a shower of lachrymose lament

That dapple the spectral breath

of an early morning mist

As it turns to a crisp gauze

brittle as a hibernal morn

and blankets the dormant land

In the frosted shroud of silent desolation.
