You wake up one morning
To find the little flurries
Raining down and leaving
A cold white blanket on the ground.
Your run outside still in your night gown
To see your neighbors shoveling their driveways
And attempting to defrost their cars.
A few kids are laying in the middle of the street
Creating snow angels at their parents feet.
Some older kids a little farther on
Are in the dawn of a great snowball war.
You laugh as one kid shouts in furry and tackles his friend.
Then you rush back inside to the smell
Of baking in the oven and peppermint coffee
That is wafting down the hallway.
Your Christmas decorations seem to lighten the mood
And now that it's snowing you can believe
It's really almost here.
Then you have to admit it's the best time of year
When the snow's raining down all around you
Creating a festive cheer.
