A Christmas Snow

Bundled in goose down like their feathered friends;
they plump outside for they've no wish to stay in;
they dive in the snow, the mundane to transcend.
Boys howl and they whistle and the girls defend
igloos of snow bricks with rosy cheeks and chins,
bundled in goose down like their feathered friends.

Small toddlers fall boom, make angels and pretend
that the snowflakes are food, as their silly faces grin;
they dive in the snow the mundane to transcend.

Snow geese honk and a large flock descends,
roaring with laughter the children rush in,
bundled in goose down like their feathered friends.

Mother lights the Christmas tree on the bend
and Father grabs a scarf and joins the din.
They dive in the snow, the mundane to transcend.

Snowballs zoom, as sisters and brothers contend
even the pooch prances (for of course he is kin).
Bundled in goose down like their feathered friends,
they dive in the snow the mundane to transcend.

    If I didn't know better I would think I was rubbing off on you (unintentional sexual pun). As you know the child in me is my calling card. However I know you already own a very light joyful touch to your nature not always recognized by everyone. A Fav. love you!

    Villanelles are so tricky to write, because of the heavy repetition - but that didn't hinder your poetic prowess. You paint a delightful evening of Christmas shenanigans - I like Cyndi's comment on "Charlie Brown-ish"... great work!

    In an effort to keep Soup etiquette, I am only going to say this is truly beautiful and its language so good... plump, a noun used as a verb, all those kids so "Charlie Brownish" in their layers of snowsuits. Yup. They plump, indeed. Now, if I were not to be up on soup etiquette, you darn well know what I'd say... ;).... MHAH

    gosh, debbie, a villanelle can be such a cool form when it is in the RIGHT hands. and it fell into the right hands with YOU doing this poem. One of the better ones I have seen in this contest. This would be a high win if it were in a contest of mine.
