[Dedicated to Winter 2020]
Sloshy slippery wonderland wintery slices of snow, cover my path though there’s nowhere to go. Bringing in a crisp and crackly breeze, kissing my lips & making me sneeze. The rolling hills show no signs you will let up, as I rifle through my trifle looking for the right get-up.
The river flows with steady control, as you fall over trees so tall, giving each a lush wintery white coat. From the warmth of my kitchen, I watch the happy children play, as snowy days are meant for this in every single way.
They build a Mr. Snowman, and riotous snowball fights. They jump and prance as the shy deer in the backdrop dance trying to skate across the ice. A hot and homely cup of Cocoa with marshmallows & whipped cream, set my mood and body soothed as my nose is tickled by its steam.
