First Snow

This is actually a song I wrote nearly a year ago, when we returned to America after our three years on a tropical island.  Since I can't compose music to save my life, I usually refer to it as a poem.

[verse 1]

Snow drifting, falling to the ground

Fire burning, family all around

It's the time I've been dreamig of so long

The first snow

I walk outside, staring up in bliss

Spin in circles, shriek at all I've missed

It melts on contact, but I don't care

The first snow


[chorus]

Sparkling white

Cold and clean

Beautifully fresh

Perfect, pristine

I love the seasons

Spring, summer, fall

But winter's first snow

Beats them all


[verse 2]

Soon we'll eat turkey and watch football

Hang bright lights and deck the halls

But for now I enjoy this sweet beginning

The first snow

We wash the dishes, let the fire die

Get our coats and say good bye

The day is done, but I never forget

The first snows


[chorus]

Sparkling white

Cold and clean

Beautifully fresh

Perfect, pristine

I love the seasons

Spring, summer, fall

But winter's first snow

Beats them all
