Virgin Snow
Looking out at the vastness of white
Snow had fallen throughout the night
Footprints in the virgin snow
From whom they come I do not know

Winter it has come at last
Can’t even see one blade of grass

Ice it forms on the lake

But not thick enough to take ones weight

Soon the kids will be here

Sledges out and snow ball spheres

Making angels in the
virgin snow
And having fun wherever they go

The day goes and darkness comes

Kids gone home to there mums
The snow falls throughout the night

Erasing all that days snow fights
A clean sheet in the morning light
Ready for that days snow fight
