Happy Birthday to Len Burgess

As Len celebrates his 80th, let’s revisit one of his ice crystal masterpieces. Len is truly a fine artist, craftsman, musician and scholar. Above all, he is a warm and gentle soul and, happily, a good friend.

                                     At Dawn

 At dawn we walk through a forest of frozen firs,

 their branches dipping to snag our hats and drip

ice down our backs and send chills to our toes,

with snow underfoot and shadowy woods ahead.

 

But, the young sun’s glow gives a sweet caress

and promises us shelter as we trudge through

this strange, mysterious  and glorious world

of shadow and light, of biting cold and loving

warmth
