In Response to~Jingle Poetry ~Gooseberry Poetry Picnic~Week~18~ Soberly Silently White

Oh The snow still and soft
Soberly silently white
Clean and fresh lying there
People stepping
 around with care
Loving its touch
Liking it much
Feeling extremely cold
But trying to be bold
Splashing and swishing
Branches bowing down low
Bearing the soft burden:
Oh, people passing close
The smoky breaths
The noses so red
Hands in gloves
Scarves round the head
The huddled looks
The long boots
The misty screens
All is white –no green.
Indoor hands facing the fire
Everyone in warm attire
Oh of what does one think,
A cosy bed and a hot drink.
