TITLE: The Light Within

I love to walk the silent streets
Once snow has lulled the world to sleep;
When village-lights are faint aglow,
And shadows are in slumber deep.

If I meander, soft and slow,
And follow where my breath does go,
The town will turn to fields tucked in
Beneath a sweep of shimmering snow.

And there, on every barren limb,
On every fence-wire, dark and dim,
Are crystal chimes of frozen fire
Aglimmer from a light within.

Oh, how it does my soul inspire,
This glacial glass, this ice on fire!
And as the breeze stirs -- soft delight --
The chorus of a crystal choir.

And so beside this field of light
I pray upon this Holy night:
My heart lifts high, my head bows deep;
For I have found the purest light.

And as I walk the silent streets,
My soul no longer lies in sleep;
And shadows are no longer deep,
And shadows are no longer deep.

It was like I was walking on the street with you. Very nice job.

Wonderful! You had me feeling as if I was there with you. A peaceful calm came over me. Great job!

Peacefully and gently written. This is highly reminiscent of Robert Frost's work. It is delightful to see someone reach in the footsteps of the masters.
