The Significance of Snow

    “The Significance of Snow,” Ensign, Jan. 1985, 25

    The Significance of Snow

    For want of this God used all:

    Wind, water, absence of fire

    And presence of sun, ice, earth.

    Wrought, ribbed, patterned: reflected

    In whole and part, His wisdom.

    To fall like white stars, turning

    Palely, each dying lustre

    Foreseen, planned for chance, each new

    Crystal folding light in, out,

    Living through the ebbing pulse

    Of fall, the stop, the single

    Final iridescent change.
