Blue Snowflake

Mother blue, snowflake ripe

Blue snowflake your heart splits open tonight

The night given to Christ

The night opened from the dark

The night of the Yule, a hello to winter

A promise of birth

Blue snowflake like a glass castle

An angelic citadel of bleak light

An earthly miracle

One and two and three and five

Some eyes button on so few

But just as love comes quietly and without jest

You, blue snowflake, blossom in our hearts

Deaf fairies, raging gnomes, uncovered trolls

You hold our smiles and bring them home60433CTJKT(1)
