It didn’t hang around very long.
It glazed like icing on a cake,
Over trees, cars, and the giant lake.
Adults sighed, but children smiled,
They wanted to play outside for a while.
To toss snowflakes into the air,
And build snowmen with hats to wear.
Footprints trailed across the ground,
That showed where children ran around.
New clouds move in with warmer weather,
The snowmen melted to the size of a feather.
Puddles formed upon the street,
Where snowflakes melted beneath our feet.
Songbirds cheered and flocked to trees,
Chasing each other in the breeze.
Fog rolled in and raindrops drizzled,
While the snow around us continued to fizzle.
And tomorrow starts a brand new day.
Let’s awaken with a smile and take time to play.
May the joy of Jesus, the blessing of each new day, and the warmer weather brighten up your way.
