A Wintry Tune
                                                                            
'Twas the night before the dawn
When sweet darkness  covered me,
Quiet filled the star lit sky
And everywhere I see,
Golden lights aglow
From houses warmed by fire
And children dancing to and fro
All dressed in sleep attire.

Then smoke from chimneys swirl
As the cold night air chills,
I watch the smoke just twirl and twirl
Across the snowy hills,
Then music fills the air
From chapel down the road
As people dressed in muffs and furs
In horse drawn carriage rode.

The crystalline iced snow
Sparkles under the reflecting moon,
And every crunchy step you take
Forms a wintry tune
My soul is filled with joy
Yet with a heavy heart
My story's coming to an end
Soon winter must depart
And once again the summer days
Will slowly melt my heart.

I like this.  It has the same feel for me as Twas The Night Before Christmas or A Visit From St. Nick, whatever it's called.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
