CHRISTMAS SNOW - 2013 and beyond

A re-post (slightly altered)...inspired by- and dedicated to - all who cannot be at home for a precious time of the year but who are always there in heart and mind.

CHRISTMAS SNOW

At home the Christmas snow is falling

I see it clear so far away

I hear the happy voices calling

See the children at their pla...
