The First Snowfall

October 29, 2008 at 9:43 am (Musings...)

Oh the first snowfall of the winter was a day that we all waited for
When it drifted to and fro why you should’ve seen the snow
It was near seven feet or more by the old barn door

Oh the first snowfall of the winter what a joy for a boy to behold
In each house you’ll find a sleigh that was waiting for this day
And of course, down the road a hill for each Jack and Jill

Every winter breeze that scurries sets the snowflakes up in flurries
It’s the good old sentimental season when folks put runners on their surreys
And forget about their worries when a man becomes a boy once again

Oh the first snowfall of the winter jingle bells bring us spells ever dear
Under wintry skies of gray it was snowing all the day
And it showed no signs of stopping every kid with eyes of popping
Will soon be belly-whopping on his ear

On the first snowfall of the winter oh the first snowfall of the year

…The Carpenters
The Woods

    To someone who rarely sees snow (like me) these pictures are a BEAUTIFUL sight! I hope you are not snowed in! 🙂

    Thank you for visiting my blog Melodye! It is neat to find others who spell their name like me. Feel free to list my blog too.

    I’m glad our paths crossed.

    Blessings!
