Winter has come, feel the nip in the air
Woollens and jerseys we all do wear
Tucking ourselves beneath the blankets
Walking with woollen socks on the carpets.
The wind is rather chilly and cold
Wind cheaters on our body we hold
Sweaters & coats that we hug close
Spread the warmth from toes to nose.
The green grass is laden with fresh dew
The day that is filled with a whitish hue
The snow that caps the heads of the trees
The cool and chilly is the blowing breeze.
Icy is the gurgling bubbling brook
Staying indoors and reading a book
Get yourself drenched with the sunshine
Warm yourself with a glass of wine.
The fireplace shimmers with embers old
Lit up with fire on day that is cold
Drink a cup of hot coffee or tea
Burn your lips and remember me.
Soon you will be as warm as toast
Welcome visitors when you are the host
Have wonderful party with a bonfire night
Have cakes and sweets and share a bite.
Christmas will be knocking on the door
Gifts and surprises and dances on the floor
New Year's just round the corner as well
Excitement in the household do dwell.
Sing the Carols and Santa is here
Christ is close by, no need to fear
Shining stars twinkle in the dark sky
The three Kings bless the babe as they come by.
Soon we wave a good bye and sing
Winter shall change into a colorful spring
Till then let's huddle up together to read
Poems and stories written for a kid.
