Upon awakening today
my eyes were filled with such delight.
I viewed the most divine display —
a world painted milky white.
It was a cozy quilt of snow
which piled up in banks head high
but still more came. It fell so slow,
there seemed a limitless supply.
A couple hurried down the lane;
a squirrel darted up a tree.
And what before had seemed mundane
I gazed at now amusedly.
