The first snow

The first day of winter is here,
I eagerly await for the snow.
Whether it be a little or a lot 
either way,
it’s magic is there.
What is it about snow that enjoys children so?
Is it no school?
Or perhaps the cocoa?
Or maybe even the snowball fights and snowmen that have yet to be
made?
To mothers it can be a curse. Keeping the children warm, or seeing the melted
snow tracked across their house.
But who can resist the beauty of the quiet, white snow.
Slowly falling to land on the ground among the other snowflakes.
Some say that magic isn’t real. 
But they are wrong, because every winter there is a white magic
that touches us all. 
Peppermint, chocolate, cocoa, fireplaces, family.
These all add to the magic of snow.
Not to mention Christmas too.
The sky above is white,
quietly raining down the soft winter beauty.
Everywhere is hush.
And when it snows on a Christmas Eve.
Magic even more than before 
comes alive 
in the beauty everywhere.
The lights,
The tree,
The cheer,
The family,
The joy that comes every Christmas.
All started by the first snow.
The first day of winter is here,
I eagerly await for the snow.
Whether it be a little or a lot 
either way,
it’s magic is there.
Some say that magic isn’t real. 
But they are wrong, because every winter there is a white magic
that touches us all.
