Celebration spirit fades
Winter biting cold

Snaking lightning spits white light

I run from tall trees

Storm


Green laurel bushes

Swinging to the rushing wind

Tempest is coming

Grey Wolf hides in the shadows
As does his namesake.

Breath of snow climbs hills
Icy trees glistening past
Skiers loving tune

To flourish from the compass

The clock and candle

Pure against the winter sky

Fly in formation.

Full of gathering moisture

January gloom.

Here, filling us with new cheer

Life begins anew

As seasons and weather change

It's starting to snow

As seasons are passing by

The world is gleaming

As snow crystals are forming

Landscape is changing

Reservoirs have been frozen

This is winter's change

Thus the landscape is changing

This is winter's time

As it was so slippery

Under our warm boots

The clouds are grey and heavy

Snow falls with delight.

Thay lie along the pavements

The trees are all bare

You tap along to the sound

Noise can hurt you ears

Awaits birth in winter's sky

A new beginning

Peacefully sleeping

I walked across Fairlight Glen

My spaniel came too

Morning sunshine does not warm

But brightens my mood
