To Walk in Winter Blue

At the edge of dawn, to climb the path, along the windswept hills
The world lies blue, from a downy night, and views serene and still

The world is hushed, nowhere to rush, at least that’s how it seems
I will walk along a crystal stream, as if it still my dream

The arching sky, surrounds my eyes, a morning star that shines
As sun comes up to tint the snow, with pink among the pines

The birds and deer have reappeared, and all the things that creep
Below the hills, a sparkling town, is soon aroused from sleep

The world is changed from winter’s blue to soft and ermine white
A snowglobe world, is all aglow, of winter kissed delight

My soul refreshed, with frosty breath, and I find my worries cease
Contentment comes on silken wings, my world seems filled with peace

    I'm in favor of the last few lines myself! It's a special world which appears right on the onset of dawn! Awesome work!!
