The trees are heavy with snow,
Christmas is here.
The smoke rises from the houses, all is white
… It’s winter …..
Falling, the snow is falling,
All the birds sing in chorus the branches,
of the trees heavy with soft and fluffy snow.
Hanging on the door of the homes,
the Christmas garlands.
Made from the holly leaves and,
the red shining berries.
Under the Christmas tree, there are all the presents.
The epiphany is near:
the socks are ready hanging by the fire
or by the children’s beds.
The children enjoy themselves
skiing or making snowmen.
Their scarves wrapped around their necks.
Carrots and buttons animate their faces.
Now it’s all silent.
…. It’s winter…..
