Dermott O'Reilly's 'A Children's Winter'. A gentle song that evokes memories of childhood (especially mine). 'Love it!
A Children's Winter
The winter snow is a child's delight
As it brightens up the winter night
And coats the earth in a cheery white
As it softly drifts upon it.
The smiling faces watch the ground
As the snow is falling all around
And through the glass there comes no sound
As the snowflakes melt upon it.
Snow Man, Snow House… Hey, play with me
Shake the snow down from the tree
Games once played by you and me
Snow is softly falling.
The morning comes and the children play
Their laughter rings out through the day
They hope the snow is here to stay
And it won't be gone tomorrow.
Sliding, running down the hill
The time for fun is now but still
As they climb up life's long hill
They're sure to meet some sorrow.
