Angel in The Snow


Such a way to be uplifted—
As I bustle to the house
on a cold, wet winter day.

The fragile craters dotted across
the drifted snow
Bring a reminder of our joyful play.

Such a warm welcome home, smiling,
These snow packed indentions
made in fun
Have created angel impressions
of my son.

    Hello, I do think your website may be having browser compatibility problems. When I take a look at your site in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in I.E., it has some overlapping issues. I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Besides that, wonderful website!

      Written a long time ago! But it’s one of my favorites too!

    This poem is timeless in my mind. Where once my son played in the snow as a child, now I enjoy watching my grand-kids wrestle each other in the snow. The girls are more into making snow angels than the boys…guess that’s pretty normal. 🙂

      Thank you – I wrote it long ago when my kids were small.
