The Snow / Silent Night

As my fascination with the season continues, so does my yearning for snow. A couple of weeks ago the first flurries swirled down, getting my hopes up, but it was only a quarter inch or so. As I drove home from work, the sun trying hard to melt the precious dusting, my thoughts turned to the upcoming holiday and my dreams of a white Christmas. And memories of snowfalls past. While I'm not one likely to write a true Christmas carol, this snow ballad, wrapped around a carol, will have to do.

Just a dusting of snow
On the week before Christmas
We were hoping for more
But the sun was too bright.
It's a gentle reminder
The season is with us
And is we are patient
The night will turn white.....
