Snow on white blossom
Blooming forth in winter’s cold
Promise of Spring hope.

My response to Carpe Diem #1297 White Hand of Moses
In our month exploring The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, today Chèvrefeuille tells us we are skipping ahead to the 4th verse and the ‘White Hand of Moses’:
Now the New Year reviving old Desires,
The thoughtful Soul to Solitude retires,
Where the white hand of Moses on the Bough
Puts out, and Jesus from the Ground suspires.
