Fresh snow, falls in Northern sheets on the bed of night,
Hemming satin pillows in canticles of the Magnificat.
December writes its liturgy in Summer praise, Selah!
Where Southern daisies embellish the tundra in gerbera,
While the North, in icicle chandeliers, etch Winter’s laser.
Tipping its hat to both seasons in its December orbit,
Tellus trims itself as ornamentum; a galactic ornament,
With Polaris, a bedazzling hook, clinging to its zenith.
