Hello there, everyone! c: You can call me Lyre. I've been on Gaia since 2006, although it's only been about a year since I rejoined. Since then I've been having lots of fun rediscovering the Gaian community. I'm excited to be a part of this holiday event thread and I hope everyone has fun participating in the contests and socializing in the thread! <3

"Winter"

Look, look at the falling snow,
Like crystal feathers,
Like the tears of angels,
Brilliance reflected in glory pale,
Diamonds falling, falling so sweetly,
Look Dear do you see the snow fall?
Snow falling like the gentle hopes of children,
Sweet dreams, purity and love,

Come, come and sit with me by the fire,
Heat of the fire, your warmth and mine
Sit with me as we watch the snow fall,
Like crystal feathers,
Like the tears of angels,
White, clean and pure,
Innocence from Heaven

Outside the snow is falling,
A soft clean blanket for the world,
Inside it’s warm and here’s a soft blanket for us,
So come and won’t you sit with me?
We can sit together you and I,
And we can look at the falling snow.

Prizes:

Funniest: Snow Companions
Strangest: Pora Ice
Most Heartfelt: Nouveau Winter
Best Holiday Themed: Winter Fox Mink
