Sleigh bells ringing, children singing,
Bonfires all aglow.
Skaters gliding, snowmen smiling
While snowflakes softly blow.
God made the Winter wonderland
For children to frolic and play.
What fun they have throwing snowballs;
Their hearts are happy and gay.
The moon that shines on fresh-fallen snow
Still takes my breath away,
But most of al I pleasure
In watching the children play.
So enjoy the Winter wonderland
That fills our hearts with cheer,
For one day soon it must leave us
As Spring will soon be here.
