The First Snow and Carolyn

The harbinger of winter cometh
Big, fat flakes
fall from the grey
I shy from the cold
away from the window
shudder at the thought
now so close
cold
unwelcome guest
at my doorstep

By the wrist
reluctantly dragged

then we dance in it together
no hats
no coats
no gloves
no shoes
catching wonder on our tongues
Singing carols a bit too early

Joy I was missing
found in your heart
the child within me
yearning to come out
emerges

into this wonderful
snow-globe heaven

My inner child
longs for where I belong
even more

For now,
this pleasure will suffice

the Joy I was longing for
finally found in your love
forgotten child buried within me
yearning to emerge
comes

as
The Joy that Came
