Winter Sweetness

This little house is sugar.
   Its roof with snow is piled,
And from its tiny window
   Peeps a maple-sugar child.

~ Langston Hughes

This poem makes me think of snow on a bright, sunny day when it sparkles like diamonds... or sugar.  Houses look like gingerbread, and I can just imagine a maple-sugar child waving behind a window. :)
