Snowforts and Snow Angels

They unite!

The swish swish sound of snowpants as sure thighs stride
The crunch of wet snow under boots
The disobedient strands of hair escaped  from her mother's tightly braided handiwork
Whipping about according to the wind's will
Runny nose, watering blue eyes, and cheeks reddened to a rosy apple glow by winter's puppy dog nip

Intent on a snowfort and snow angel mission
No break taken except to quench thirst
With eyes closed, her mittens lift the glorious white mannah 
Tongue and mouth delight in the taste of winter that the snow carries deep within her hold
Could any wonder be as beautiful than the bliss of an eight year old on a storm day?
