A Country Christmas Eve (1976 Chapbook) - Poem by Bill Grace

On a solitary vigil so cold and fair
The air took feeling from my face
And gave a glowing in its place,
I saw snow glistening upon the fields
And heard the ringing silence of the night.

Not a breath of wind stirred the snow to dance
As a renegade star put the moon to shame
A distant silver fire that lit the blue night sky.

    Lovely imagery in this one. In the ancient Book of Job, we are told that there are treasures in the snow. I believe you have found them in this poem.

    Warm regards,
