Snow So White - Poem by Carmela Patterson

God must delight in the sight of His snow so white
Should not our souls, too, be just as bright!

Gazing upon the newly fallen snow and what a pretty show!
It seems so pure, white and undefiled ~ for a while.
The tall evergreen's heavy snow-laden branches
Seem to frolic in the wind as each fine pine needle prances
To a distant song that the Lord sings and He dances.

God must delight in the sight of His snow so white
Should not our souls, too, be just as bright..
For Purity to strive with all our might?

Oh but the change that takes place when flakes reach the earth
And are tread upon by playing children to their great mirth
Or sullied by the necessity of living our lives to the full
The once beautiful snow becomes rather dull,
White, gray and black, the colors upon which to mull.

Beyond the snow and the winter season
Spring brings hope we reason
When new earth begins to bloom
Wiping away cold and gloom.
The falling snows help to water the earth
Preparing it for Spring's rebirth
Each Season has it's unique worth.

God must delight in the sight of His snow so white
Should not our souls, too, be just as bright!
