white snow, bright snow

white snow, bright snow

Softly, gently in the secret night,
down from the north came the quiet white.
Drifting, sifting, silent flight,
softly, gently, in the secret night.

White snow, bright snow, smooth and deep.
Light snow, night snow, quiet as sleep.
Down, down, without a sound;
down, down, to the frozen ground.

Covering roads and hiding fences,
Sifting in cracks and filling up trenches.
Millions of snowflakes, tiny and light,
Softly, gently, in the secret night.

wishing for my friends in much colder climates
full pantries, warm blankets, and great reads.

the girls and boy and i paid a visit to the libray. we have some great reads for all to enjoy in our wet and rainy italian weather. il cielo piange {the sky crys} as we sit and wait for the sky to clear, we'll read and pray for better weather for all.

...stay warm...stay safe!
