The joy of Christmas is near, the snow falls down covering the ground creating a winter wonderland ..and a pretty robin enjoys the countryside bathed in colours of snow.

Christmas Snow

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.
The flakes fall down and settle to rest,
Christmas is near and snow at its best.
