Sunlight on the Snow

Sunlight on the Snow

(First Line Quatrains)

Sparkly snow on Grill

When sunlight sparkles off the snow,
Just like a thousand tiny jewels,
It brightens up a chilly day,
Inviting magic mood renewals.

When sunlight sparkles off the snow,
It plays optic games with shadows,
Projecting many minor dips
That clearly show across the meadows.

When sunlight sparkles off the snow,
All the day’s delights are on display.
They’re dressed in white with snow-flocked trees.
Behold a glorious winter’s day!

Author’s Notes

It really does sparkle in the sunlight. One can get a sunburn and definitely need sunglasses on a sunny day, due to the reflection of the light off the snow which doubles the brilliance. Combine this with the freshness of the air after a snowfall, and it really is spectacular. I tried to capture that sparkle in the picture.

This poem is a First Line Poem done in Quatrains. The name is pretty self-explanitory. The First Line is repeated in every stanza. I did this one in tetrameter, but not iambic, as the
tempo was mixed. The rhyme scheme was abcb.
