• Gentle snowflakes
    Decorating trees
    Puffs of smoke
    Leaving chimneys

    Howls of wind
    Rattling the shutters
    "It's a cold one tonight"
    My father mutters.

    Prickly pine cones
    Clenched in my fists
    The sweet scent of pine
    Surrounds me in mists.

    Cold winter snow
    Freezes my cheek
    I stick out my tongue
    Oh, the air is so sweet!

    This snow globe I hold
    Is so lovely and grand
    How I wish to live
    In that Winter Wonderland!
