Snowflakes hover in the air
Riding gently on the breeze
Then settle cozily in your hair
As you try not to sneeze.
Winter coats the rooftops white
And streets are painted with snow
Helsinki is a beautiful sight
At dusk with lights aglow.
Those who brave the biting cold
Venture to the harbour
To the marketplace with items sold
I look upon with ardour.
Beyond, ships dock beside the shore
Seeking shelter from the sea
This cozy place, this is the core
The ocean is the key.
The buildings, painted yellow walls
And white roofs, welcome me in
As winds howl and winter falls
I am glad to go within.
