The Old Woman Who Brings the Snow
There is much speculation as to where the snow comes from. Some surmise that it is simply weather, and it is best to leave it at that. But there are those of childlike heart and mind who know that snow is more than weather, and the bringer of it no mere small thing like wind and atmospheric things. It is the old woman who brings the snow. It is the moment she waits for, as the year begins to wane. The moment of winter that bring her from her sheltered cottage at the north of everything. She comes on her feet, for her legs span many leagues, and where it is needed, she shakes her bell. And down comes the snow. As simple as that.
