A winter's night

Stillness all around

Snow blankets the ground

Clouds in the sky are ready to release more

Yet the moon still breaks through a crack

Pale light from a sliver of the moon

Peeks in through the window,

Slips through the leaves of a tree

The lamps outside homes near the driveways

Cast small orbs of light over the white ground

Quiet throughout the house

Everyone sleeps but one

In the stillness of the night

Staring out over the white, peaceful world
