    Snowflakes falling one by one
    Oh how I long to see the sun
    But winter's work is not yet done

    There are snowmen to build
    Sleighs to ride
    Boots and gloves to wear outside

    A gathering of people
    At the local skating rink
    A cozy warm fire
    Hot chocolate to drink

    A chilling wind, strong against your face
    Woolen sweaters
    Layers of clothes
    A box a tissues for a runny nose

    Winter is a time for patience
    In a few short months
    Birds will sing
    For then will come the warmth of spring

    You've painted a portrait that has me experiencing beautiful scenes with all my senses....my desert is void of snow this winter....I live vicariously through your words....love the way you do that. :heart:
