A Winter Surprise

by

Solveig Paulson Russell

Last night while I was sleeping
The snow came softly down
And slipped on all the shrubbery
A shining snowflake gown.

I guess that every little bush
Felt startled with surprise,
To find itself a cotton plant
On opening up its eyes.

What a lovely little verse! Your garden looks like a winter wonderland! I must admit I felt like a big kid when the snow came.

Bob-Kat I managed to resist the temptation to frolic in it.
