I have been struggling with sleep. Restless nights make long days.

But tonight

Looking out my bedroom window....

I welcome a peaceful midnight snow

Dotting the skies under a street-lights glow

Pillowy snowflakes dance their way to the ground

A low distant foghorn is the only sound

A gentle white blanket drapes the steet

Untouched and untainted by mortal feet

I feel comforted, climb into bed

And hope that sugarplums will dance in my head

On this cold and glorious winters night.
