With the snow flying and the world turning I thought today would be a wonderful day to share a poem that I love. Joseph T. Renaldi wrote a poem about the wonder of the snow. Lets all take a moment and remember that the snow is not just a nuisance but a magical gift. 


There are strange and mysterious sounds
When the winds of winter blow, 
The long nights are crystal clear and cold, 
And the fields and meadows are covered with snow.
The stars are frosty against the sky, 
And the wind's whistle is shrill, 
As the snow blows against the house
And drifts against the hill.
Yet, I like to see during the winter
A white carpet on the ground, 
To plod aimlessly in the deep snow, 
where deer tracks abound.
I like to feel the stillness
Of a crisp winter's night, 
Watching a full moon rise over the horizon, 
Exposing a winter wonderland beautiful and bright.
