WINTER'S HERE - by writingmagic26


by writingmagic26

The snow falls
on a cold winter night.
A snowman stands
outside a house
keeping watch
as the soft flakes fall.

A girl cuddles up with her dad
by a warm fire
under a colorful quilt.
They laugh through the night
fuzzy socks on their feet
and hot chocolate warming their hands.

In the morning a radio blares
“School’s closed! School’s closed!”
A small boy shuffles downstairs
in his teddy bear pajamas
awaiting pancakes, French toast
and a warm winter breakfast.

A college girl smiles
as she sits in a coffee shop
computer in front of her,
a story beginning.
Out the window kids fly
down a powdery hill
laughing and playing
in the snow.

That night snow falls
to cover the footprints and
snow angels, snow forts, a child’s lost mitten.
Fires crackle
a baby sleeps
and a snowman keeps watch
as the soft flakes fall.
