I've made a little change (1st stanza here used to be 2nd to last) -- is this better than before?

There's magic in the world today --
as the city still sleeps
looking plain as usual
tiny angels flutter all about
paving it over with change.
There's magic in the world today --
I can hear it in the wind
splashing against my face
as if to shout "Wake up!"
with invigorating exuberance.

There's magic in the world today --
I can feel it in the chill
making my cheeks tingle
I know if I could see them
they'd be pink as fresh blossoms.

There's magic in the world today --
I can see it on the ground
turning concrete into lace
softening angular edges
my feet walk on clouds.

Dawn rises
on the first snow of the year.

My neices love to play in the snow and probably my little nephnew too. I like it if I'm all bundled up and warm.

When it snows, I can feel that little kid in me bursting to get out. She hates to walk straight over it getting to work instead of stopping to play!

I added a picture. Meant to do it originally, but published too hastily and then forgot.
