A girl, her flute and her dog

a girl, her flute and her dog
in front of the fireplace
in a cabin in the mountains
after a long day of skiing,
is this why she is smiling,
her hand warm against the fur,
her back warm against the fire,
looking at her husband who she loves
and who loves her
she has finished practicing and
a glass of wine is waiting for her,
some dark chocolate with roasted almonds
and a warm bed
this girl, her flute and her dog
are happy
(although the dog does look serious)
soon the day will be done,
the Moon has already risen
there are stars high in the sky
all is beautiful.
