This time of year when fog takes part

and light days vanish out of sight,

when darkness seems too long and tight -

then we'll paint the glittering winters art.


When sunshine rarely shows it's beams,

when raindrops hit the windowpanes

and it is bleakness which domains,

watch out for pure and hopeful streams.


They come along in times you never know

with tunes reminding us of happy days

and our hearts no longer feel in chain.


Whatever bothered us will not remain;

instead of that we'll find a friendly fireplace

and all around will be the swirling snow.
