Picturesque

 

Like fire on the mountain snow

nestled in the quiet night;

splendid in a silhouette glow

 

Sheltered from the chill wind flow,

a stark, beautiful, enduring sight

Like fire on the mountain snow

 

High above the world below,

a lustrous view, a beacon bright

Splendid in a silhouette glow

 

Shimmering wonder to bestow

enchantment, from a height

Like fire on the mountain snow

 

Gleaming clear, a midnight hello

to stir ideal dreams to flight

Splendid in a silhouette glow

 

Moment in time, a flawless show,

a perfect picturesque delight

Like fire on the mountain snow

splendid in a silhouette glow
