after christmas, before big snow

so they say, it's coming

 a bit more snow
will be welcome
i must sort out my skis 
 get them ready
 the light is still low and thin
late in the morning and early in the afternoon
did solstice really come?
 streams are icing now
 and wendy welcomed hannah
for a visit
a neighbor readied for christmas
with four elongated horses
decked out for the season
