Description

Frostbite: Crystals come and crystals grow They form in water and winter snow They all are unique, these icy chards They can be wafer thin or reach depths of yards They shimmer like crystalline sculptured art From silver to blue they stand apart They retreat from the sun but flourish in shade And just water’s the stuff from which they’re made There’s little to match these delicate shapes They cover the shore line like fine crafted drapes They cover the streambed that still flows below They decorate soft spots surrounded by snow Though fragile by nature these splendid ice slivers Make no mistake, they’ll give you the shivers Their beauty is splendid, their structures are bold But in spite of their beauty, this ice is still cold Some may be tempted to venture there in Only to find that the ice was too thin They turn to retreat, they now must get back There is no time to waste when the ice starts to crack But if they fall through, it’s not time to weep This time of year, it’s just ankle deep But it matters little to the water or snow This is the place where ice crystals grow.
