“The Snow Maiden” A Poem


 The Snow Maiden

The Snow Cascaded, Swirled and Blew
In the Magical Kingdom
Of the Land of Snow;
Amidst the Snow Flakes and Fairies,
The Snow Maiden Dances,
Twirling on Pointed Toes
From Moonbeam to Shadow;
Her Silhouette we followed 
From Forest to Meadow;
Snow and Ice are Her Friends,
The Coated White Earth is her Floor;
Center Stage from Heaven
The Stars Shine on Her,
Seeking no other;
She is the Snow Maiden
Graceful and Fair,
In her Fairy White Dress
With Star Light in her Hair;
Dancing in Bliss
With no Worries or Cares,
Delicate and Graceful
From Finger Tip to Toe,
She's Eloquent to Behold;
Her Eyes Sparkles like Crystals,
Amidst the Snow Fairies and Sprites,
She Waltzes in Solace
With Mystical Delight;
From Winter's Breath She Sprang
Twirling and Dancing in the Chilled Air
Through the Forest and the Fields
The Wind Whispers her name,
Brilliant and Translucent, Crystal
The Maiden of Heaven's White Veil.

“Rejoice in the Dance”

Then shall the young women rejoice in the dance, and the young men and the old shall be merry. I will turn their mourning into joy; I will comfort them, and give them gladness for sorrow.

Jeremiah 31:13

“Lovely” A Poem


All that made you
 fragile and fierce;
clever and powerful;
wounded and creative;
layered and thoughtful;
moody and insightful;
wild and damaged,
Can be described in
One single word:


“A Soul who knew how to Dance”

 She always had that way about her.

With a heart that knew depths

Beyond this world, eyes that saw

The beauty in all things and a

Soul that just knew how to dance.

“I Praise you for I am Fearfully and Wonderfully Made”

Psalm 139:8-16

If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. 
If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, 
even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. 
If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” 
even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. 
My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. 
Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

A Flower with a Graceful Soul


She was a flower with a graceful soul

Filled with passion and dreams…

A SENSITIVE PLANT in a garden grew,
And the young winds fed it with silver dew,
And it opened its fan-like leaves to the light,
And closed them beneath the kisses of night.
And the spring arose on the garden fair,        5
Like the spirit of love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on earth’s dark breast
Rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.

The Maiden of Heaven’s White Veil

 Crystal Michelle Fallin, a Snowflake in the Waltz of the Snowflakes, Nutcracker Ballet performed by the St. Augustine Premier Ballet Company 1996.

The Snow Maiden

The Snow cascaded, swirled and blew,
in the Magical Kingdom
Of the Land of Snow;
Amidst the snow flakes and fairies.
The Snow Maiden dances,
Twirling on pointed toes
From moonbeam to shadow;
Her silhouette we follow
From forest to meadow;
Snow and ice are her friends,
The coated white earth is her floor;
Center stage from heaven
The stars shine on her,
Seeking no other;
She is the Snow Maiden
Graceful and fair,
in her fairy white dress
With star light in her hair;
Delicate and graceful
From finger tip to toe,
She's eloquent to behold;
Her eyes sparkles like Crystals
Amidst the snow fairies and sprites
She waltzes in solace
With mystical delight;
From winter's breath she came
Twirling and dancing in the chilled air;
Through the forest and the fields
The wind whispers her name,
Brilliant and translucent...Crystal
The maiden of heaven's white veil.
