Rehearsal on Glass

Paper is my canvas as I attempt describing, for fun,
What Nature has boldly and beautifully done on a canvas of glass
and help from the sun.

Glittering artwork on the glass; Jack Frost has sketched his best;
Each talented stroke, in early November, mimics January - a test.

Sunshine catches each abstract line and patterned lace is fine;
Nature's artist, chosen well, leaves beauty in each line.

Not yet time to use the brushes - fine-tip nibs work well
And windows give a grand rehearsal of what winter's canvas will tell.
