Rosy Snow

Rosy Snow

(Over Idyllewild)


Here in my humble hamlet near Hemet
Almost sunset, I stepped out on Mann Lane
I took a picture of the snow near Idyllwild
With my camera I wanted to maintain,

A copy of something Iíd never seen before
Snow with a rosy glow
I wanted to capture the beauty of
While enjoying the warmth here below.

Iíve seen sunsets and sunrises
In Kansas on the plains
On the Pacific Ocean
And it always remains

A thing of wondrous beauty
In the sky for you and me
Just another example
Of Godís paintings for us, to see.

Here in our humble hamlet we can enjoy the mountains
From down here on the rocky desert floor
See their snow capped beauty
Like Iíve never seen before.

Back when I walked to Chelsea School
In that cold, cold white winter snow
I never dreamed I'd see
Snow with a rosy glow.
