DMC: "Blanket" by Lana Wayne Koehler
As the snow blankets the earth in winter,
As the rain blankets the grass in spring
and makes the flowers grow,
As the sunshine blankets the sidewalk in summer
making it hard to walk barefoot,
As each leaf blankets my yard in fall
with the promise of bonfires and cider,
So am I blanketed in love.
