Winter's Gift

To honor the first snowfall

And all the ones that will come after

We put on our coats, gloves, earmuffs, and hats

To play in the snow, have snowball fights,

Make snow angels, and if there is enough of it

Then make a snowman

Before getting out the shovel

And cleaning up the sky’s mess.

We end the day freezing cold and soaking wet

 Perfect conditions for a cup of hot chocolate.
