Winter has always been my favorite season. Other people get depressed by the dark days but I remain an optimist. The snow will be coming for months, and that makes me feel good. Safety is in those frozen trees. The once green ground wears a white hat. I never want the earth to remove this apparel. Its much more than a fashion statement to me.
The cold doesn’t cause any bother or nuisance, instead it wraps itself around me like a child’s favorite blanket. All my worries are covered and smothered to death. Life comes to me in winter, and the world feels like a nice place to be. Even after the holiday season winter keeps its glow. The season itself is a gift to one of its many admirers.
