Velvet Shoes

Rating: 3.4
Let us walk in the white snow
In a soundless space;
With footsteps quiet snd slow,
At a tranquil pace,
Under veils of white lace.

I shall go shod in silk,
And you in wool,
White as white cow's milk,
More beautiful
Than the breast of a gull.

Stunning isn't it? She has mastered the arts of repetition and the strength of a good vocabulary. There is a lot under the surface here, me thinks
