In our cottage, echoing in silence,
words became taboo;
inducing an early winter.
The snow fell in hordes,
down upon this town.
We let go
of our silent vows,
as its flaking lullaby began.
With numb gloved fingers,
we moulded her,
sculpting the perfect doll.
We glazed her porcelain skin with ice,
crudely poked in her eye sockets;
our own Frozen Charlotte.
We longed for her eyes to flutter open,
even for just one glassy glance.

An Edward Scissorhands print featuring the snow scene with the character Kim Boggs. The print has a snowflake overlay design and the quote:
“You see, before he came down here, it never snowed. And afterwards, it did. If he weren’t up there now… I don’t think it would be snowing. Sometimes you can still catch me dancing in it.”
