January Snow

We had a beautiful snowfall this past weekend. What a way to say farewell to January! It was so beautiful that I thought I might try my hand at some poetry.

She quietly made her way to town
Effortlessly, silently she hits the ground
She has a mission, 'tis plain to see
To blanket the earth for you and me.

Her presence brings a child-like awe
And we can't help but to recall
Those tender years when we were young
When thru her whiteness we would run.

For some, as we stare upon her face
It takes us back to a distant place
Where our hearts so long to be
Tucked warm amidst our families.

Yet as her blanket starts to fade
And as we cling to memories made
Beneath her whiteness, beyond our view
Quietly lies the promise of all things new.

And just as silently as she came
She leaves us all, we're not the same
Within us a calmness she has placed
And the result - 'tis the smile upon our face.
