Frosty dog encircled moon, color in the night.
Jewels glitter upon new snow, shimmer bright.
Magical memories, times when winter ruled.
Childhood enthusiasm, never could be cooled.
Wind blown drifts, always meant a day of play.
Sliding slopes, launched airborne on my sleigh.
Trudging knee deep back uphill, reaching the top.
Exhilarating speed, face burning, laughing non-stop.
Making snow angels, arms and legs flailing wild.
Forts, snowball fights, resourcefulness of a child.
Growing longer in the tooth, comes with it's cost.
Enchantment with Old Man Winter has been lost.
Coldness, now penetrates clear through my bones.
New snow gives rise only to backaches and groans.
