Ice Diamonds


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,
with love,
will fill.
