Dancing Snowflakes

Through the study window what do I espy?
Dancing snowflakes before my very eyes
It’s dark outside yet in the lamp light
I watch them dance and take flight

The breeze blows them hither and thither
The chill in the air could make you dither
Their stage is the air the lamp the spotlight
That sets them to dancing in the dark of the night

Looks like someone has broken an eiderdown
They look like they might cover the entire town
It’s the very first snow of the year outside
I suppose the kids tomorrow will slide

The country will grind to halt
The wrong snow that will be the fault
I’ll make the first footprints in the virgin snow
Spoiling the blanket on the ground I know

Meanwhile tonight I’ll watch the snow’s white ballet dance
Through the snow in the morning my dogs will prance
Knowing me I will probably end up on my back
For in snow a sense of balance is what I lack

    those last two lines were so cute. This is a delightful little romp in the snow with you, Owens. I like the way you let us see through our child's eyes!
