woke up early on accident and saw the snow
i felt a big gulp of excitement and made a phone call
as soon as was acceptable
we hiked up the canyon by our neighborhood
no whitewashing occurred
but many happy thoughts and lovely moments
we made plants and branches lose their snowy coats
and observed deer-tracks
and talked about love and hope and faith
we slipped and slid up hill at first
and then downhill
we sang "my favorite things"
we threw snow at each other and laughed
i think this snow is wonderful.
i'm in love.
