Snowflakes in February

A woman passed me in the park. Her daughter walked … no, she jumped and danced behind her mother with a red toboggan.
I nearly woke you up last night, when it started to snow, said the mother. She laughed and turned her head towards the child, who smiled happily.
A mother who loves to play, isn’t the worst thing you could wish for as a child 🙂

I counted till they danced so
Their slippers leaped the town,
And then I took a pencil
To note the rebels down.
And then they grew so jolly
I did resign the prig,
And ten of my once stately toes
Are marshalled for a jig!

  1. Wonderful words and photos. Danmark is so full of beauty. I like the little old castle a lot. I would like to live there. Have a nice week-end, kind regards Mitza

    • Hello Mitza. The only thing missing is one of God’s bathtubs 🙂 though there might be a real one inside the castle 🙂
      Wish you a joyous weekend too,
