Lady Winter

Lady Winter clothed in ermine

On the North Wind gallops in,

Over crystal bridges bright,

Over carpets snowy white.

.

See the North Wind snorting, prancing,

Scare the leaves that, romping, dancing,

Cease their merriment and play

And hurrying, scurrying, run away.

.

A Year With the Fairies.

  1. This one is my all-time favorite, Elephant! What a fantastically beautiful white-haired woman! I love her outfit especially the hat. The colors too! Wow. Every once in a while I see a white haired woman who looks really great and think about throwing away the hair-dye.

    1. Lady Winter is a beauty – so glad you liked this one – I like her too. She has a great deal of energy – you don’t usually see winter images that are so happy!

      It takes a great hat to notice a great hat!

      Hi Ho,

    1. Dear Jeanette,
      Thank you for this nomination! It is very kind of you to think of me. I am looking forward to checking out the other nominees. Your alphabet is so wonderful – I am still thinking about it!
      Thank you very much!

  2. Perfect illustration for the first (official) day of winter. I love the description of the North wind snorting and prancing – which it has been doing too much of where I live.

  3. The winter wind does knock one over like a horse sometimes, especially when black ice is involved. And the Lady Winter looks very Marie Antoinette. Off with her head every spring. 🙂

  4. Thanks for stopping by The Pen’s Might and liking “They Were Too Bright,” and my other posts that have tickled your fancy. Stop back any time, you’re always welcome and check out my art sites as well, if you have a mind to
