    Narration of heavy snow fall and snow flakes descending in the form of fairies on earth in great hurry is amazing.
    The condition of heaps of snow by night and the description, By night they stealthily had stolen away is simply superb imagery. Thanks for sharing.

    My word, this was luscious. I am finding so many new poets on this site to settle down with and read on a cold winter evening with the fire snapping and popping and I am sipping a cup of hot chocolate. (Report)Reply

    You went with Dawn. You left me ere the day,
    The lonely actor of a dreamy play.

    The lonely actor in a dreamy play- - What a fantastic dream-play is enacted through this lonely actor- -the snow fairies dancing- - beloved comes when heart is like the weather- - -a marvelous write where nature and human feelings intermingled. (Report)Reply

    As though in heaven there was revolt and riot,
    And they, frail things had taken panic flight
    Down to the calm earth seeking peace and quiet.

    Very nice image and nice poem. Good reflection of nature.
