Billowing outstreched arms of snow lash against
the fall bared trees which whip about under the
control of biting cold north winds pouring down
through the winter encased valley where inches
of soft powder has entrenched itself over the night

During the intermittent breaks of driven snow
smaller rabbits and birds dash about, moving
from one shelter to another while searching
for a morsel of food, having not the foresight
of the wily squirrel still safe on his straw bedding

As the storms temper winds down and eventually
fades into forgiveness, the heavy snow laden
clouds above give way to peaks of the winter sun
that gradually strengthens and accents the
whiteness of the snow covered landscape

Before long, the crunching of feet through the
snow signals the approach of children dragging
their worn and dented sleds to the top of the hills
lining the valley as they look below and excitedly
prepare to fly down the hillsides

As the day progresses, the hill becomes rutted with
sled trails and the returning footsteps of children
huffing and puffing their way back up the hill
while all the time the winter sun smiles down
and the air resounds with thrills of laughter


 A real man
kisses his children goodnight

You've taken me back to my childhood with this one James! It is beautiful! Very well done!
