sentry at the snowy gates ...

stands guard o'er ~

a chrystal land of wonder ...

"Shenandoah Sentry"

White Winter Wonderland
Theodoro (Theo) Onken

Oh, these white winter walks exhilarate

As does the crisp frost tipped air

Blown 'cross the mountain tops and vales

Light as a butterfly-snow flakes so fair;

'Tis the whitest of white times

Heralding in all the holidays best

Celebration 'cross the countryside and nearby vales

Pass the most perilous of slippery road test;

Out upon the sod-a snowman or two

With building of snowcastles supreme

Oh, those white winter walks encite exuberance

Hence giving credence to my white winter dream;

As glorious winter makes her snowy bed

And the invigorating air chills to the bone

I am ever thankfu for this white winter world

And for all of the past winters I have known.
