'First Snow'

'First Snow' oil 24 x 36
 
The first snow of the year
 always takes me back
to wet socks with holes
and coats hung in the back
cold fingers aching
and snowmen in the making
with Christmas just round the corner

There have been a few first snows
since way back then
with more footprints in the snow
in different fens and glens
but when those flakes first start to fall
at once, I’m right back again
with Christmas just round the corner

~Jeffrey J. Boron~

Wishing you peace, love & joy,
a very Merry Christmas and all the best in the New Year
Sincerely,
Jeffrey

Dear Friend Jeffrey... Your painting... but mostly your poem painting aroused my child within... an invitation to join you in celebrating this special time when clean white snow erases all of the wrongs of a troubled world.

Is there any better reason for making paintings ... than to touch the heart and soul of another?

We share that journey... and the joy of living that comes with it!

Good Painting!... Merry Christmas!
Warmest regards!
Bruce
