This happened one winter morning when my daughter was four.
Mittens and hats are pulled from the drawer
Scarves and coats litter the floor
Excitement, excitement, thrills and delight
While they were sleeping, it snowed in the night.
Thirty-five minutes of wrapping up warm
Pulling on boots to play on the lawn
One hundred and eighty seconds they played
Then back in the house, and that's where they stayed.
Into the kitchen, warm cocoa and treats
Thawing their hands and drying their feet
The little one turned and took in the view
'WOW! LOOK! - It snowed in the back garden too!'
