My dear girlfriends of givnology, thank you for your most loving comments on my humble contribution, though I have no right to be among the "classics" I thought it would fit in nicely.
Thank you so much! I so love Winter and snow, but when I lived back home in Switzerland I suffered from the cold, but I can't even begin to tell you how much I miss the beauty of those long gone winter seasons. They don't get as much snow as we got when I was a child and teenager. I remember my brother built snowhuts in our garden, which lasted for weeks and snowmen of course ...
May you all enjoy a magnificent Winter and Christmas time.
Trying to write a Winter haiku here and now ....
