to see how the boys would think twice.
A winter’s day is
Bleak, blustery, and barren.
The earth awaits spring.
Two footprints, white sand
We laughed here so long ago-
The sun falls alone.
I hear crackling
Crunch, of today’s new found day
And know it won’t last.
So I will leave it
At bay; and hope for the best
This bitter new day.
Silence around us
Our watchful eyes hear the world
Hands do the talking.

Gathering strength as they grow
Pouring life-giving torrents
Cleansing the world in shower
Light, airy snowflakes
Fall frostily on your nose
Frolicking in dainty flakes
Gathering crystals gala!
