Late Winter Snow

by Jmf4119

Uplifting Poetry! Contest Winner 

A winter snow fell late last night
and blanketed the lawn.
I thought that it was early Spring --
but I was proven wrong.

And so I dragged my mittens out --
my heavy coat and sled;
those boots I thought were stowed away--
beneath my old sleigh bed.

The sun was brightly shining down
when we met on the hill.
We laughed and played throughout the day --
delighted by each thrill.

And now we sit beside the hearth.
The kettle set to steep.
We had a notion for romance --
Instead....we fell asleep.
