Being in a Winter Wonderland II

They gathered atop the mound in the city park
Dressed in snowsuits of pink, green, blue and red.
Bundled big kids, small kids, moms and dads.
Little hats with cut out eyes, mouth, and nose.
A hundred tiny and large footprints in the snow.
Down they came in twos and threes, holding tight.
Laughter and joy! Big fun heard for miles.
No game boys needed, no high tech toys required.
A sled, a mound, and tons of snow. Yippie!
