When Winter Comes

When winter comes with its cold and steely gray
The trees stand in their silence, bare and thin
Making me want to tiptoe down and lay
A warm soft coat upon their frozen limbs.

Sometimes I think that the sky looks very weary
The air around me seems especially heavy and dense
It can make you feel tired and quite dreary
And sometimes even feel grumpy or tense.

But when the snow begins falling all around
Turning the dirty ground soft and white
Dropping out of the sky without a sound
It makes the long cold winter seem all right.

So, when the sun peeks out clean and bright,
The long cold winter has now become a delight.
