Alone in the still forest,

I sat down to rest

feeling blessed to just be there,

without a thought of earthly care,

amidst the woodland browns and greens

of that lovely, peaceful scene.

The Winter clouds swiftly thickened.

My senses quickened- more alive

to the sky and forest around.

An enchantment fell upon me-

a magic that made me see

the glorious wonder that abounds

in everything, everything around.

In gratitude, I prayed

this magic would never fade.

Then I heard the musical sound

when snowflakes kiss the ground.
