Although it doesn't seem possible, we received another huge snowfall yesterday.
Earlier, before the storm hit, the sun came out and with it
I felt the gentle touch of spring.
Here are my favourite clematis seed-heads wearing ice diamonds,
whose beauty is both rare and ephemeral.
"They say diamonds are forever,
Yes forever and a day,
But if diamonds are forever,
Then they must be here to stay.
I think love will live forever,
Way beyond forever's day,
It's not diamonds as eternal,
No matter what they say.
Diamonds are a fleeting fancy,
As soon they will be gone,
But if love is your true diamond,
It will ever linger on.
So if you are seeking diamonds,
And I know you always will,
Then just find the kind of diamonds,
That your life,
"Diamonds are Forever"
