I’ve never seen snow

The sun rises clear
In a cool blue sky
White mist coats the land
A pristine blanket
So peaceful to behold

Dew drops glisten
On all the leaves
Like tiny pure
Diamonds sparkling
Gems amidst the cold

Snow fox cubs leap
Wrestling in the snow
A squirrel titters
Twitching whiskers
Storing acorns in its hold

A hare as pure white
As the snow covered ground
Thumps its leg in delightful praise
Unbeknownst to him a grey wolf prowls
Her hunger barely controlled

A spotted deer
Plays and leaps
Mother marching sedately along
Under the round watchful eyes
Of Mr White owl wise and old

I’ve not seen the snow before
Never walked a peaceful tundra
Only in my dreams and mind
Have I stood amongst the falling flakes
I know it only from stories told.


I would so love to walk in the snow one day before its my time.
