Snow Upon the Snow Gums

Post by Stephen Whiteside » Sat Aug 25, 2018 4:50 pm

Snow Upon the Snow Gums

Snow upon the snow gums is a mesmerising sight,
When the air is clear and frosty, and the sun is shining bright;
The scene is so familiar, all the details balanced right.
Yes, snow upon the snow gums is a mesmerising sight.

Snow beneath the mountain ash is not so often seen,
For down at lower altitudes, the ground’s more often green;
Yet when it is, the view is both majestic and serene.
Yes, snow beneath the mountain ash is not so often seen.

Snow upon the tree ferns simply steals your breath away.
The beauty stops you in your tracks. There’s nothing you can say.
It’s like a foreign fairyland, so delicate and fey.
Yes, snow upon the tree ferns simply steals your breath away.

I like this one too Stephen. Continuing your theme of weather events, perhaps a collection brewing??

Gorgeous photo too.

Cheers
