First Snowfall

There’s a blanket of snow on my barnyard

There’s a blanket of snow on my barnyard

Such a fun sight for me

Fills my heart up with glee

There’s a blanket of snow on my barnyard

There’s a carpet of white on my rooftop

There’s a carpet of white on my rooftop

Yes, we do get some snow

Down in New Mexico

There’s a carpet of white on my rooftop

That first snowfall of the winter… always such a wonderful and welcome event.  When I lived on the other side of the world on that sunny island, my e-mail box would be full of messages titled “Snow!” when it first came falling down on Portales every year.  We do love to proclaim it, don’t we!

    Can’t really call it a “blanket” officially… but that was so much prettier than “traces of snow”! Ha! And maybe it will become a blanket. =)

    Not to worry, I think it will become a blanket.
