Day 5: Snow Princess

Snow

Surrounds and envelops me

The bare tree branches are weighted down

With the snow clinging to every surface

A fairyland outside our home

Yet as sure as your first love

Fades into disappointment

The fairy dress of snow

Fades to slush and ice

Shoveling – cold – aching

My fairy lover has changed

To a harsh demanding mistress

You would think I would learn

But I still look for the fairy princess

And greet her with joy

Each time

For awhile.
