Standing in Snow, and Frosting

Standing in Snow

The snow

Drifts down

On my boots,

It clings there,



I am glad.

I like the snow to fall and fall,

It covers grass and trees and all.

It makes the bushes feather white,

Hiding brown earth from my sight.

Sometimes in snow I run and slide,

Or build a fort where I can hide.

But best is the early morning sight,

Of all my world turned frosting white!
