The icy wind howls,
Or is it:
The cool wind blows?
The frightening chill,
And the agonizing cold,
Is what makes winter great,
For it strengthens the appreciation of
Warmth, comfort, and safety,
Items of convenience that are often taken for granted.
It is the sled rides with friends,
The snowball fights with neighbors,
And the hot chocolate shared afterwards
That makes winter delightful,
And why it should be cherished
By all who have the pleasure of enjoying it.
