The first snow

It is a thing of magic
The first snow that we see
A sign of winter’s coming
A sign of what will be

It never comes during the day
The first snow comes at night
It’s blanket forms while we all sleep
In a coat of winter white

It may arrive and disappear
All in the same day
But, there’s magic in that first, fresh snow
Although it may not stay

The first snow has us dreaming
That Christmas is now near
A feeling of remembrance
Of those we held so dear

The first snow has us feeling
What words will never say
With frosted patterns painted everywhere
Each different in their way

You’ll wait for it’s arrival
When the world is painted white
Watch the window into winter
Open wide beneath moon light
