Here’s December’s secret: there’s magic in the air.
And each sleeting windstorm carries it somewhere.
It dusts the ground below your feet to lighten up your step
and turns your boots to dancing shoes, your schlep to pirouette.
The season can be tricky when folks carry such a load
and all their Christmas wishes can’t be brightly wrapped and bowed.
But kindness rolls like snowballs, and people do their part
to share their own sweet blessings and the pieces of their heart.
If you look a little closer at both the sunshine and the snow
you’ll find December’s secret almost everywhere you go.
