Winter in the Park

Last night an ice storm came to town
And dressed the fountain in a gown.

Icicles hung from the trees
Like chandeliers out in the breeze.

Each statue wore a fancy dress,
A frozen garment for each guest.

A night of magic in the dark,
A winter ballroom in the park.

Geeeeez, you're good. Wonderful, simple, evocative poem... or should I just say "cool"?

Hi Greg! Thanks for your comments.
High praise coming from a poet I admire.
