The snow is gently coming down,
As silently it covers the ground.
All around is a blanket of snow,
Announcing winter so all may know.
Children are excited and squeal with glee,
At this wonderful sight they see.
To go outside they can hardly wait,
So many amazing things they can create.
Mothers smile and shake their head,
The wet mess they can’t help but dread.
Then they remember being a child,
And at the falling snow going “wild”.
Looking at it from a different point of view,
The wonder and excitement they feel too.
They realize why their children jump and squeal,
And just what it is inside that their children feel.
For a little while they too are in an awesome place,
At the sight of snow, with a smile on their face.
