Once A child in the snow
When tomorrow seemed
So far away
When dreams were oh so real
And easy to believe

It seems so many years ago
But it hasnít been
That long a time
It was hard to get to sleep
On Christmas Eve

Through the years the fantasy
Gave way to
stark realities
And it seems so much
Was lost along the way

Now a grown man but deep inside
A magic place
where this child hides
Where the winter chill
warms memories of love

Memories of a child in the snow

I didn't know what to expect when I chose A Child in the Snow. The first thing that came to mind was the Viking's exposing their unwanted babies. I was pleased the poem was on a lighter subject. Wanted also to tell you a couple of the links on, I think, your Bio page don't work.
Happy writing. Linda

Well I was intrigued by the title but this is the magic of the season that no matter how old we get we are still that child.

So glad you kept that child within Ed, we need to hold on to what we can no longer get in this ever changing world, in which we throw out the baby with the bathwater too often...Wonderful poem...take care
