'There is beauty in a blizzard
there is magic in a storm.
There is peace on earth for all who berth
in homes of love so warm.
The snow gives not a soft white dam
to whom it settles on.
It falls, it melts and chaos cause,
blinds motorists through its soft white gauze,
leaves destruction in its winter's wake
and won't let up for mercy's sake.
That's the beauty of the blizzard,
that's the pain within the storm.'
