A Canadian Snow Fall

Come to the casement, we’ll watch the snow
Softly descending on earth below,
Fairer and whiter than spotless down
Or the pearls that gleam in a monarch’s crown,
Clothing the earth in its robe’s bright flow;
Is it not lovely—the pure white snow?

See, as it falls o’er the landscape wide,
How kindly it seeks all blots to hide,

[Hata Bildir]
