If you want to see someone smile, give them a flower.
When winter blows its cold breath everywhere,
And throws a chill white blanket on the ground,
The sun makes sparkling diamonds on the snow,
And trees with icy diadems are crowned.
It's time to snuggle in for winter fun
In cozy places, maybe by a fire.
A good book and some cocoa feel just right
In flannels, sweaters, winter's warm attire.
Winter's gloom is comforting somehow,
As life retreats from its rushed and frantic pace.
We're ready now to stay indoors awhile,
As we settle into winter's calm embrace.
