Fall storms are over, the air is like lead,
cool is the wind blowing around the head.
Over night snowflakes are falling to the ground,
secretly and without the slightest sound.
Beautiful snow gives a new season birth
by coating with white the cooled down Earth.
People start using a much quicker pace
leaving the white covered ground with their trace.
Mountains and hills are sugared in white
with only the moonshine it still looks like light.
Children love snow and run for their sled
as soon as in the morning they’re out of bed.
Racing downhills with friends is much fun,
then discussing who lost and who won.
Some warm chocolate from Mom at return to the house,
It’s time now to wait for Santa Clause.
Christmas gets closer, excitement is high,
until then, snow and cold will come by.
People wear scarfs and gloves on their hand,
to gaze in amazement at this winter wonderland.
