Born to slide

What double happiness as a parent in the snow!

Pulling a bundle of joy behind,

White slopes ahead,

The air ringing with giggles.

Watching the light reflected in young eyes

that marvel at the world transformed.

Sound muffled.

Hands painfully alive.

Hopes and prayers flung with wild abandon

for a snow day and school closures.

Stick! Oh, please stick snow.

Watching my Son drink in this Winter scene.

My spirits raised, by red cheeks and a Cheshire grin-

This shared love of snow.
