And one morning

When I was

Ten I opened

The curtains of

My shared bedroom

Wiped the window

Free of frost

And saw Wonderland

My world was

Covered in snow

Like a cake

Blanketed in buttercream

Frosting the pine

Tree boughs heavy

With millions of

Sparkling whipped cream

Diamonds my brothers

And I dashed

Donned in jammies

And robes out

The door skidding

And sliding laughing

Gleefully forming snowballs

Like fluffy balls

Of yarn tossing

Them at each

Other on this

First snow day

As mother greeted

Us with hot

Cocoa and marshmallows

Winter is here

Finally in Wisconsin
