The Warmth In A Winter's Night

The intricate dusting of tree limbs and grass paints such a quaint picture tonight. Cold hands in mittens , warm breath fogs the glass as we find our way towards the light. Crackling hearth's such a delight! I'm snug as can be all wrapped up in your arms though outside our window it's snowing. Captured here happily by all your charms I can't even hear the wind blowing. The warmth of you's all that I'm knowing. Let's drink a hot toddy and toast to the night as we cuddle and watch all the snow. The flakes as they drift are a beautiful sight. Right beside all the lamp posts they glow All night long they'll continue to blow. The warmth of the fire makes us sleepy and such. I am here by your side,close your eyes. I'm lost in your eyes as I feel your sweet touch. We'll sleep as the wind howls and cries; awaken to a snowy sunrise. for contest "A Winter's Night" sponsored by Francine Roberts written November 18th, 2013
