A tingling, misty marvel
Blew hither in the night,
And now the little peach-trees
Are clasped in frozen light.
Upon the apple-branches
An icy film is caught,
With trailing threads of gossamer
In pearly patterns wrought.
The autumn sun, in wonder,
Is gayly peering through
This silver-tissued network
Across the frosty blue.
The weather-vane is fire-tipped,
The honeysuckle shows
A dazzling icy splendor,
And crystal is the rose.
Around the eaves are fringes
Of icicles that seem
To mock the summer rainbows
With many-colored gleam.
Along the walk, the pebbles
Are each a precious stone;
The grass is tasseled hoarfrost,
The clover jewel-sown.
Such sparkle, sparkle, sparkle
Fills all the frosty air,
Oh, can it be that darkness
Is ever anywhere!

Hey where is the Picture of Matthew’s red cheek from the 2 foot root his brother was swinging and tagged him? …but I guess that was technically in October. 😉 Definitely not funny for Mattie at the time, but good for future stories
Loved the photos and poem! Your apple picking photos brought back memories of when my two were small. We have those same pics! (well, yours are better!)
Wow, how you matched the poem with the pictures is truly amazing. Your kids are gorgeous, and so are you.
Gorgeous pictures set to beautiful words. I love this time of year!
