- Of, relating to, or occurring in winter
It was the same every year. The first snow fell and the children couldn’t wait to go outside and play. Afterwards, they sipped hot chocolate that was loaded with marshmallows. Their rosy red cheeks would make Santa swell with pride. It wouldn’t take long before they were begging to go back out.
“When would spring arrive?” “I’m cold.” “I dun wanna go outside.” “Can I watch TV instead?” “I hate winter.”
I smiled and kissed their foreheads. Soon, my sweets, spring will arrive, bringing muddy puddles, signing birds, and a new first joy.
