Bright white
a sunbeam gleams
across glass at last
enticing the ice

glitter and glow
heavenly arrow
float on by
in a frozen sky

the world can be old
the world can be cold
but in bright sunlight
frozen glass shines outright

a frosty enclosure
calls for extra composure
simple tricks
we're optimistic

remote we float
on freeze and seas
one with the sun
over snow below

stuck in reflections
engulfed in light
pure and clean
the surface is right

entrapped you hide
tethered and tied
steal the chance to glide
and above reside

pursue what's true
purity and virtue
in a whiter hue
is a fresher view

the lights are on everywhere
beneath the ice, you're stuck downstairs
