Vanilla-frosted World





Winter flung wide her cupboards
And to the earth unfurled
In soft, snow-sugar aftermath
A vanilla-frosted world

In heaps of silent splendor
Unfathomed morsels drop
And now each lowly fencepost
Is a lustrous lollipop

…and now we all are children
Fleet-foot and fancy-free
As winter spills its wonder
In vanilla-frosted glee

Inspired by my daughter as she shouted, 'Look. The world is covered in vanilla frosting!'
