Snow here in Tappan, New York

Snow here in Tappan, New York...

A gossamer veil of gentle wind, snow and light
Settled and cloaked in crystal strokes of white
So delicate be these touches upon barren branch and bough
Beauty shall we behold be the snow's silent vow
Tenderness and temper define this morning's domain
Nature's splendor holds its special claim
The faint song of wind upon chime
Heralds a welcome melody to Winter's touch of time.
