Christmas is near and the snow falls down carpeting the ground creating a winter wonderland. A pretty little robin stops to enjoy the view.


The land is covered in a blanket of snow,
this time of year is special we know.
A robin sits in a tree so high,
a splash of colour against the sky.
Flakes fall down and settle to rest,
The view is so pretty and just the best!
