Holly leaves of sparkling gold,
warm the grey winter skies and the frosty cold.
As the druids knew,
holly brightens up all winter scenes,
so lovely in it is ever green.
Once upon a snowy walk in a winterís dream,
I saw a holly bush turn from green to gold and gleam.
with shining silver centers to the leaves,
each seemed to be a small opening to another world.
The golden curls of the leaves started to multiply and grow,
soon forming a sparkling blanket on the fresh fallen snow.
The berries were trios of radiant emerald greens,
the richest tones I have ever seen.
Berry Bialy I heard the wind whisper,
Berry Bialy said the passing white rabbit as he twitched his whiskers.
Alice in her looking glass,
I understood at last,
as the mirrored areas of the leaves called,
the earth swelled,
forming Berry Bialy snowballs.
Stepping back I fell,
when I awoke I drew the Berry Bialy and wrote the dream down,
afraid that soon I would have no memory of the moments at all...
