The First Snowfall

Updated on December 20, 2012

Sparkling At Night

To see the ground turning all white

Like frosting a cake

Corner to corner every spot covered

The most unique design as each snowflake makes it way to the ground

Delicate and at the same time floating silently

Do miracles ever cease ?

Hearing Christmas music from afar

Seeing decorations so beautifully arranged making each home glow

Peaceful times where love is everywhere

Even a noisy car passing by can sound like bells and whistles blowing

With the wind and the tree tops shaking

I swear it was a huge pair of hands up in the sky waving

The soft sound of childrens voices

Spread laughter and fun to everyone

The first day of winter will always be remembered

As a time when there is a chill in the air

Where you can see your own breath

Before we know it Christmas will be here

So much to be thankful for and holding all our love ones in our prayers

With the new year right around the corner

Lets end this year with so many good thoughts and all the friends we know

Celebrating till our eyes close from a long day and all the happiness we have found

That can make even frosty tip his hat and grin

As the final words good night could be heard whispering in the wind

      We had more snow this year in Croatia and no snow for Christmas. I enjoy watching snow fall, you have described it so well in poetry.
