The ground covered wholly in soft winter blanket
A luminous shroud of white and blue
Dancing in the moonlight in singular flakes
The snow falls soft and I think of you.
Memories of childhood replay in my head
Snow kissed by moonbeams of soft pale light
Of winter's wonders and promises said
Of patiently waiting up half the night.
Snow days from school and free time for all
Smiling as we played in the drifts
Looking the fool when the snowman would fall
And snowball fights with frozen fists.
Funny how blue the rain makes us feel
When falling and clouding our day
And yet we face the snow with such zeal
Watching it blot out the things in its way.
So I'll relish the snowfall, enjoying each flake
Cuddled here in the warmth of the hearth
And love it for the beauty it makes
And wish for you here in my arms.

RSEvans -
A splendid rendering.
I like the warmth of the hearth ...
a good place from which to watch the snowflakes fall.

Never been in snow myself - and this just takes me there. Well done.

I take it that beautiful snow is cold as well as soft.  I'll take the sun and rain, but the hearth at night--yes.  I liked the feeling of this--captured a mood.  Nicely done.

 In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.

I saw the snow fall for the first time last week. it was beautiful. you captured the feeling well here.

I sing my tearful song which has charms only for me."

Marge -- Fire is also a beautiful thing.
Severn -- ***ploosh*** (you've just been hit by a long-distance snowball.
Martie -- You would be surprised how warm snow can be...
Saxoness -- Once is never enough.
Thank you all

"cuddled here in the warmth of the hearth"..that is a wonderful line....and, by far, the best way to look out at the snow. Lovely poem.

The snow if falling and I would like
to have some of that lovin'
but here I don't have a hearth
would you sit in front of my oven?


Didn't mean to make light of your wonderful poem RS...it's very good and romantic!

The winter can be warm and cozy with the right person by your side or it can be cold and lonely by yourself.  I hope you have the right person so it will always be warm and cozy.  Remember the "Blue Christmas" songs we used to listen too.  The mountain was certainly beautiful with the snow and the glistening of ice on the trees.  Especially when the sun came up in the morning on a fresh snowfall.  Beautiful memories.  Thanks.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...we have had ONE snowfall and I live in Minnesota for heaven's sake! Loved your poem, RS, I enjoy the snowfalls (and the memories they bring) myself.

Oh dear brother, you have made me want for snow!  And I hate the stuff !  Only because I hate being confined to the house!  I'm spoiled on 4x4, and I don't have it this year!  Argh!  Somehow you make me want to just curl up in front of our fireplace.....aaahhhh, with a hot Cappaccino!  As a matter of fact, I just went downstairs and made one!  My first of the winter season!  Thank you !
