Silver Filigree
The icicles wreathing
On trees in festoon
Swing, swayed to our breathing:
They’re made of the moon.
She’s a pale, waxen taper;
And these seem to drip
Transparent as paper
From the flame of her tip.
Molten, smoking a little,
Into crystal they pass;
Falling, freezing, to brittle
And delicate glass.
Each a sharp−pointed flower,
Each a brief stalactite
Which hangs for an hour
In the blue cave of night.

This week’s poem can be found here.
