a child awaits the Christmas snow

a child awaits the Christmas snow

white flakes descending from the sky

catching the sun like a million pieces of glitter

no two the same

the fresh powder a sure sign that Santa will come


the snowman that sits in the yard

bright orange carrot for a nose

and a black felt hat

stick arms waving in the air

seems so real he could come to life


“would you like a cup of hot cocoa?”

the child asks

and though the snowman doesn’t answer

the child holds the old thermos up to his mouth

sharing the warmth of Christmas

peace and joy


one day the child will grow

have children of his own

but he will always await the Christmas snow

and cherish not only the memories

but also the spirit of all that is good
