snowflakes twinkle as diamond baubles of Winter lace
touching treetop tresses cascading landscape with grace
pearlescent panorama decorates houses as icicles crystallize
in vibrant view a Winter blanket carpets amid glorious sunrise.
dazzling frosty windowpanes reflect a chilly atmosphere
announcing Santa's on his way as Christmastime draws near
upon the snowy lawns lights illuminate pristine
O Holy Night as Angels gather round the manger scene.
silvery stars glow as sequined embroidered light
while the gold of crescent Moon indulges snowbirds in flight
to journey a wintry panorama and inhale the love
God has fashioned through Mother Nature falling from above.
as soft mounds of drifting snow caress mountain peaks
windchimes in the distance play while refrain gently speaks
a carriage ride through the park covered in purest white
accentuates the treasure of a Winter's cherished delight.
tiny droplets of snow kiss cold cheeks to blush
chilly temperatures tingle as toys of warmest plush
a joyous Season embraces as embers in a fireplace
crackle comfort as eyes enjoy rare beauty of white lace.
