|C. Frank Brockman,

A thousand stars are gleaming in the velvet sky.
A gentle breeze - but cold as steel - goes wafting by
To stroke the trees, now mute with snows.
In promise of the days they soon will know
When Spring, with warm caress, shall then unearth
The lifeblood of a thousand plants; to give them birth
Again. And then these rugged mountains girthed
In varied hues and rainbow shades await
The hoary clutch of winter and then icy fate.
