A faded print from long ago:
Three sturdy ladies in the snow
Prepared for fun out on the ice,
And maybe falling once or twice.
They're all together, yet apart.
Each gaze reflects a different heart.
Contentment, sass and prim reserve,
And yet I think they each deserve
A sturdy man to share their days,
An Adam to return Eve's gaze.
Have you entered the storehouses of the snow...?
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
I'm almost certain that the devices around the ladies' necks are clip-on ice skates, designed to fasten onto the soles of their shoes or boots.
