*** The Snow ***
And just as I suspected, we are enchanted.
bewitched with the first blush of love.
In the morning, the first sound I wake to is a restless buzz of excitement
the joy of awe and wonder displayed on each face.
I myself am infected
The days had been starting out dark and very gray
but any light in the atmosphere reflects off the glistening frozen white
so the mornings are more welcoming with snow
and even a night with no moon seems to glow luminescently.
Breakfast is "got-through"
and school is beyond hope
until children see if 2 inches of snow will mobilize their sleds.
I have to curtail the fun early in order for wood-stacking chores to comence
otherwise cold fingers win.
Don't worry children O' mine,
There will be more snow tomorrow.
And if not,
surely our Winter will be fuller of snow
than eve YOU can think of enough uses for!
Here's one more best thing about snowy days...
.....a warm fire with my favoritest little people :-)
I'm not sure how I could have been
so sad to see you go
but since I have to give you up
I'm thankful for new glistening snow.
