First Snow

Snow drifting, falling to the ground
Fire burning, family all around
It's the time I've been dreaming of so long
The first snow
I walk outside, staring up in bliss
Spin in circles, shriek at all I've missed
It melts on contact, but I don't care
The first snow

Sparkling white
Cold and clean
Beautifully fresh
Perfect, pristine
I love the seasons
Spring, summer, fall
But winter's first snow
Beats them all

Soon we'll eat turkey and watch football
Hang bright lights and deck the halls
But for now I enjoy this sweet beginning
The first snow
We wash the dishes, let the fire die
Get our coats and say good bye
The day is done, but I never forget
The first snows

Sparkling white
Cold and clean
Beautifully fresh
Perfect, pristine
I love the seasons
Spring, summer, fall
But winter's first snow
Beats them all
