Snowflakes fall gently to the ground Different every one A downy blanket of snowy white Winter has begun Inside, the fire is crackling bright The room is dimly lit Such fun to snuggle together 'Neath an afghan knit Making plans for Christmas That special time of year When loved ones get together And fill the house with cheer Deck the halls and trim the tree Excitement growing daily Wrapping gifts and sending cards Singing, oh, so gaily Gingerbread men and candy canes Fruitcake and pies abound Children looking for a treat Making not a sound Christmas Day is here at last We're gathered 'round the table Gifts all opened;dinner's through To move, we're hardly able In just a week, the New Year comes And with it, celebration The old year out; a new one in What a wonderful sensation Winter weather freezing cold The wind is fiercely howling The fireplace a welcome retreat Faces now are scowling Days are getting longer And spring is just ahead We dream of sun and flowers But winter holds instead Until one day, to our surprise The daffodils are blooming All gold and yellow, orange and white Springtime once more is looming The Earth has made another turn Another season imparts All part of God's eternal plan We thank Him from our hearts Kathleen McCoy Eldridge© July 16, 2005 All Rights Reserved
