First Snow

Whipping winds and birds aflutter

Oh how it caused my heart to stutter

Waking branches from their slumber

From beneath their soft, fleece blanket of gentle cotton snow

And soon befell calm jubilation

I stood transfixed in admiration

And experienced new sensations

From this crisp and crystalline world that I had yet to know 

Then joining the melodic choir

A violin sighed beyond the briar

Sang vibrant, clear, pure notes entire

All while the sun compelled this dreamlike winter scene to glow  

As sweet songs quelled all apprehension

And rid my weary soul of tension

A single thought snared my attention

I never wish to return to humid, heated woes

For I had never before seen such fair and frosted snow
