HIDDEN WITHIN THE TREES

HIDDEN WITHIN THE TREES

There is no sun that peeks through on such a clouded day,

A most beautiful scene rests here, January and Winter, don’t look away.

Hidden within the trees, something of a Christmas wonderland,

A snow covered cabin lives here sheltered among a forest dream.

Frosted, white, shrubs are a decorated, chilly, piece of all that’s here,

Beyond that which is seen, love of a family and many New Year possibilities.

Hidden within the trees, something more than reality is yours to be,

Imagination comes to life if you have learned to dream and really see,

Before you leave raise your eyes up high, beautiful, snowy white, trees.

WINTER WILDERNESS

WINTER WILDERNESS

Alone, so alone and cold, nothing seems to be alive,

In the background a hill of snow and darkness to see.

There’s a fence surrounded by a cold, cold, sky above,

Standing by itself, layered with a blanket of icy snow is

An old, leafless, tree guarding this land.

A look of Winter on the face of this place,

Such a beautiful scene to take in.

Seems so peaceful, this Winter wilderness.

WHITE MOUNTAINS

WHITE MOUNTAINS

They stand so high, above water so cold and Icy,

Layered with white, powdery, snow stretched for miles.

Clouds rest over this land of Winter and such a quiet peace,

although the wind blows across the chilly water and lonely mountain tops.

There are slopes of wet snow that melt and flow down into a lake,

That when the sun shines on it sparkles like shiny glass.

icicles hang from ridges that have lived for some time,

Formed over centuries and in times mind.

Beautiful mountains, these white mountains.

A WALK IN THE SNOW

A WALK IN THE SNOW

Come take a walk with me, yes! darling a walk in the snow,

Hold my hand baby, walk with me as each other we’ll get to know.

I’m a little bit older as you are young, walk with me in the Winter sun,

Sweetheart I know it is cold outside, that’s why I give my jacket to you.

Reaching down for a snowball I make with my hands, these cold hands,

Throwing it at you in a playful manner as you stare at me with shock.

I’m laughing but you are bitter cold, pushing me down with my face in the frosty snow,

We stand underneath a snow covered tree laughing together,

Push ,push on the tree, watch as the heavy branches drop the freezing

White snow all over the both of us.

A walk in the snow, a walk with you.

MAN OF WINTER

MAN OF WINTER

Born of snow, he arrived one day,

A friendly sort, with the children he would play.

So happy and round with a smile on his face,

His time was so short, having fun was his race.

This man of Winter, soon he must go,

As the temperature rises and the sun says hello.

So Happy New Year, you’ll hear him say,

I’ll be back again, again someday.

LIKE A BLANKET I COVER YOU

LIKE A BLANKET, I COVER YOU

Down from the clouds, upon you I fall,

Light and fluffy but cold I am called.

To the rain I am related, to start out soft,

As the earth gets warmer, then am I lost.

Like a blanket I cover you, not so warm you will know,

White as a marshmallow, not as heavy it is told.

Throw me you can or watch as I come down,

Not much noise do I make as I touch the ground.

I’ll go away for a while you see,

But come back I will, for I’m always to be.

STAR IN THE SKY, SHINES THROUGH THE NIGHT

STAR IN THE SKY, SHINES THROUGH THE NIGHT

A journey across the desert in the dark of night they take,

To a place of peace in their search, for a reason they seek.

They look to the sky to a shiny bright light to guide their way,

Star from the North will show them the way to where they need to be.

A lifetime ago, in another land far, far away,

A star in the sky shines through the night.
