As I Awoke

As I awoke in the night, it was as if winter had drifted into my soul. ~Caoimhe I awoke

I know so many of my friends awoke to snow so I hope you pull someone close on this wintry day and warm your feets with a fire and hot cocoa as you enjoy the beauty descending about you.

The wind was still blowing the snow had stopped

When I grabbed the shovel for my nightly job

Dresses in three jackets boots mitten and hat

I did not care what hour chimed on the clock

The crisp air filled my lungs as I labored with love

While the night sky and stars glimmered above

A wonderful peace ascended my soul

While each shovel of snow helped reach my goal

I cleared a space while humming a tune

Remembering the words about the silvery moon

I filled all the birdfeeders with sunflower seeds

Knowing I had done for the day all my good deeds.

I love the songbirds and all my feathered friends

Taking their picture feeding with my camera lens

I could never live in a world without my feathered friends

So shoveling snow by moonlight for me is making amends. ~Ingeborg von Finsterwalde As I Awoke Source: Shoveling Snow By The Light Of The Silvery Moon, Snow Poems http://www.poetryinnature.com/nature/poetry.asp?poem=6480#ixzz3J9ljg4qr http://www.PoetryInNature.com
