WHEN YOU SEE WINTER

  What do you see when you see winter, do you 
  See the mountains,

  The cold, layered snow that rests so high, almost 
  Touching the sky.

  When the wind blows through the trees, do you see 
  The falling leaves,

  The snow coming down is beautiful and white, what 
  A Winter night.

  When you see Winter, do you see the frozen pond 
  Where water hides,

  Is there a lake you remember, as once you were a child 
  In another time.

  Do you recall Icicles hanging from a rooftop, from tree 
  Limbs in the woods,

  Do you see children you once knew, flying down the hill 
  On sleds and saucers?

  When you see, do you see with your memories, are 
  Your eyes closed,

 A scene from before,

  Icy roads you once drove with a family, roads you wandered

When you see Winter, does a life flash before your eyes,

Once from a child's mind.
