Curiousity hovers in the air
Peeking out of their cozy lair.
Just close enough for them to touch
The snow that falls in wanderlust.
Snug together they share the light
Which brightens faces with delight.
Reaching out to touch a flake
Harmony takes away all aches.
Of the bitter cold that envelops them
Night time closes, all is dim.
Time stands still without a sound
Feeling lost yet somehow found.
The fur of their dog surrounds them
Caught outside its sink or swim
Yet hand and hand they laugh and play
Under the snowy sky and stay.
