Why Should Snow Be White?

Why Should Snow Be White?

"If God, or Nature, works with joy,"
the young man asked, almost a boy,
"then why should snow be white?
Can it survive by just reflecting light?"

"Oh yes!" the old man promptly said,
"because the light speeds on ahead
in wintertime to strike our eyes
when we are sad and make us wise!"

"But does it not, then, lose its energy
and fade from our view anyway?
Why must it turn to mush and die
if that's the point, to warm our eye?"

He said, "I think you've almost got it!"
