The Snow December 6, 1991


The snow comes swirling, twirling down

Landing gently upon the ground

Only slightly making a sound

You feel the coolness of the flakes

And notice the many beautiful shapes

Watching what the wind and snow will make

The glistening branches of the trees

The snow blowing with every breeze

Making you feel happy and at ease

Quietly the little stream

Blends with the winter scene

Changed by the snow’s sheen

Evening shadows are crisp and bare

Leaving mystical shapes in the air

Creating artwork everywhere

Then you noticeother sights

The wind blowing snow around the lights

The reflections off the snow at night

Morning comes with muffled sounds

And there’s white beauty all around

Because the snow lays on the ground
