From Winter Wonderland

Thought I'd do something slightly different this time: Publish a poem I wrote while inspired by the wintry scene outside my window.

Softly snow in my backyard falls,
Cold and white as winter calls.
Light and lacy it drifts to earth,
Making cheery the warmly hearth.

Limb and leaf do snow embrace,
And cover gray walk's ugly face.
Turning autumn's colors to icy white,
Changing day to gray and night to light.

Cold and quiet snow settles the hills,
As families turn in to warm their chills.
Out windows they look on a magical sight,
To see nature nestled into pillows of white.
