Glistening in the light of dawn

Dancing sparks of flame

As the sun rises over the land

So cold to touch, so warm to behold

Intricately detailed beyond belief

Frozen fractals forming

Such a delicate little thing

That melts away in moments

As the fierce fire of the sun

Envelopes its tiny form

And so it disappears from sight

But lingers in the memory

As unforgettable as it is fleeting

A wondrous work of wintry magic
