A surprise this morning upon wakening
Pulled open the drapes
Snow is falling!
Why not? It is Winter here in Tennesse
Just a surprise that is all
No weather report last night to say
Snowflakes were larger than normal,
Unbelievable that each snowflake can be different.
Falling into the warm street they melt
Still roof tops and yards getting whiter by the minute
Red Cardinals seeking the feeders
They linger in the trees so bare
Calling to their females to gather
He sees the feeders at last
Snow still falling, landing like a blanket
Pristine and white
as far as I can see
From my bedroom window its a welcoming sight to me.
