Wintery White

 
 
In the wintertime we go
Walking in the fields of snow;
 
 
 
 
Where there is no grass at all;
Where the top of every wall,

 
 
Every fence and every tree,
Is as white as white can be.
 
 
 
 
Pointing out the way we came,
Every one of them the same.

 



All across the field there be
Prints in silver filigree;





And our mothers always know,
By the footprints in the snow,
Where it is the children go.
 
White Fields by James Stephens



White / Minimalism is the theme of the 2nd week in
Rebeccas (Bumbles and Lights) and
 
Nurture Photography - Winter 2013 Photo Challenge
