If...


 ...I asked the little birdies...will it snow this winter at the Hilltop..
                           .... and if yes...please let it...if only for prettiness......


"Snow was falling,
        so much like stars
              filling the dark trees
                 that one could easily  imagine
                     its reason for being
                           was nothing more than prettiness.”

 ― Mary Oliver

.......And what did they answer......-tomorrow is another day....
                                      .....a brand new moon.... a brand new sun.

How I love Mary Oliver's poetry. Her collections were my introduction to this art of words, and how she celebrates nature is magic. And did the little birds tell you dearest Dutchess how MUCH snow you would get? They came to our window sill to let us know we'd get some snow, and it fell lightly. I hope you get just enough for the "prettiness" of it.

HUGS HUGS HUGS!
