In The Midst Of Freezing Rain

In the midst of freezing rain
the trees look awfully nice,
but Id rather see them naked
than to see them clothed in ice.

As slender limbs are bending
with the unaccustomed weight,
glittering like diamonds
as the storm starts to abate.

Clear transparent fringes
hang from every single bough,
so brilliantly arrayed
in all their glory now.

Frozen drops of water
like crystals in a chain,
how beautiful they look
in the midst of freezing rain.
