Poem series: Weather: Number Two

The crystals fall upon the ground
and cover it without a sound,
and each are clear when seen alone,
but groups of them have whiteness shown,
and the crystals they form the snow,
that all on sight do clearly know,
and men of snow do stand outside,
where leafless trees do now reside,
and hills of snow do cover lawns,
and dens of small fur covered fawns,
and the white snow does last for weeks,
as ice does form on flowing creeks,
and the crystals that fell this year,
in some short months will disappear.
