every morning you greet me.
Small and white, clean and bright,
you look happy to meet me.
Blossom of snow, may you bloom and grow,
bloom and grow forever.
bless my homeland forever.
There is little of Tyrol in Spiti, except a tiny distant cousin made immortal by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein in The Sound Of Music. I found this woolly little flower blooming in abundance beyond Kunzum La, the faces of its star-shaped flowers open to the sun & nodding contentedly in that semi-arid soil.
