The snow, like a lucent shadow,
rests on the forst's every bough,
the frosty air, the moonbeams pale,
all whisper in a dim voice frail-
a wild flame burns in the snow.

No wind blows, and the forst seems,
a crystalline kaleidoscope,
whose icy calm, and high pitched rhythm,
are all but madd'ning in their trope-
a wild flame burns in the snow.

Your gaze despite your eye's protests,
is drawn with winding fingers cold,
into the secret snowy paths,
new each instant, yet very old.-
a wild flame burns in the snow.

And unseen feet dance in the white,
as unseen wings brush past your face,
strange footsteps and faint, blazing eyes,
gleam in the spirals of this place.-
a wild flame burns in the snow.

Marigold, you always take me to such places with your poems. This is another one I like very much. I had to look up 'trope' - so well done. Now I know I'm in the right era with my images as I read your poems. You have got me with forst though, I can only imagine it's forest misspelled? huni.
