We Wake to Winter...



We wake to winter warmth
The emptiness of dusk
Is wrapped within a mantle where
The wind roved wild and brusque
Then, while we were asleep
Heaven softly unfurled
A merry, mercy-melody
Upon a weary world

We wake to winter-white
Gone, earth’s grim, sullen stance
A filament of child-delight
Renders post-card romance
And where bloom-shimmering
Decked summer’s smiling girth
Ten-thousand-thousand kisses wing
Their way from God to earth

We wake to wonderlands
An argent aftermath
Of angel-throng and silver-song
Falling from heaven’s path
Sleep well, oh, slumb’ring seed
Beneath your quilt of snow
For soon you’ll hear your mother say
Wake up, it’s time to grow

Victoria woke with a big smile; sometime in the night the snow returned!
