A poem about frosty morning grass, in Villanelle form.
Villanelle: a 19-line poem with two rhymes throughout, consisting of five tercets and a quatrain, with the first and third lines of the opening tercet recurring alternately at the end of the other tercets and with both repeated at the close of the concluding quatrain.



Grass is glistening with rime.
What was dreary comes alive.
Subtlety becomes sublime.

Magic disappears with time.
But ‘til the rays of sun arrive,
Grass is glistening with rime.

Morning dew and crisp air chime,
and plot with nature to contrive.
Subtlety becomes sublime.

Frigid temperature will climb,
though crystal frost for now will thrive.
Grass is glistening with rime.

Sunlight slowly reaches prime,
but after dark, day’s heat will dive.
Subtlety becomes sublime.

Sun melts frost, a daily crime,
but new morn chill will not deprive.
Grass is glistening with rime,
Subtlety becomes sublime.
