What I Like About Winter

Written by: Cynthia Alvez

I love the sounds of winter
And the fancy way she dresses
When it snows...
I love the ice kisses she throws
From roof tops and trees
Icicles crystal clear
Forming and falling like tears
From the eyes of deserted lovers...
I love the crunch-crunch of her
Padded spaces and the way
Winter laces snow flakes falling
In piles of glee...
Snow angels, wide and free
Big and small, ah, come one,
Come all.
What I like about winter, is my new song
Now I must run along to fetch my sled
And tumble over and over in my snow bed...
Oh, I hear the voices of children at play,
Winter!
Winter!
You have made my daydreams come true!
