There are many days until winter,
Snow falls gently on the houses and trees.
The houses look like they are made of gingerbread,
The snow sweeps across the rooftops.
Branches of the spruces and pines touched with fresh snow,
Snowflakes exquiste to view.
Walking becomes a careful excercise,
The snow covered sidewalks.
Soon to be cleaned and swept,
Pedestrians dressed with their warm coats and hats.
Vehicles standing in the driveway,
Partially covered with snow.
A labrador retriever shakes off the snow,
A wise owl sits on a snow covered tree branch.
The beautiful blue jay sits on the branch of a snow covered pine tree,
Parents and children warmly dressed, caress the winter weather.
The gentle hill becomes their playground,
Toboggans and slides are a favorite passtime.
Skiiers can be seen gliding down slopes,
When you arrive home a delicous cup of cocoa or tea.
Welcomes and warms the fans of winter,
God's day complete, good to be home.
Thankful for such a beautiful winter day,
Blessed by the Lord.
