Their snow kissed noses burrowed deep
into the weathered, fallen snow-
from the snow banks,
dangling ice crystals formed the flowery frost.
The evening brought illusions of daylight
peering through sun-kissed mirages-
tantalized by the streaming water particles
which caused their need to pant-
they sipped from melted water droplets,
and they grazed from blades of covered grass.
The blankets made from the Winter’s snow covered them-
and Hardwood trees provided their shelter.
