SNOW

by Glen

Everywhere is covered in snow
traffic is moving very slow
children on the way to school make snowballs
and still the snow falls
The scene looks just like a christmas card
the cars have packed the snow hard
some drivers are in a hurry and cant wait
they have skidded into someones garden gates
the gritters are spreading salt and sand
hoping to melt the snow
but all the children dont want the snow to go
but i think it is here for a few more days

I should give you a ten for describing my city the last few days. :p You're right, kids never want the "snow to go" --- and I'm still a kid at heart, I love the white stuff.

    No, I'm not from Manchester but my city in the states got hit, I loved it!! I remember hearing this once about snow: Those who have seen stars in it haven't driven their cars in it. LOLLS

by JPerry1980 on Monday, February 02, 2009 (13:35:19)
Unfortunately my little car would disagree with the beauty of the snow outside (as would my employer that is marking me down for "sick hours" today); I'd rather take a drive in the heated August sun any day, when I tried to take my car out of park earlier she just laughed at me. You do a great job of describing the serene child-like wonder of the snow though. Thanks for sharing. -- j.

G'day Glen...
Am I reading a frustrated poets words here? We're frustrated here to Glen...except it's the sun that's giving as a hard time. Two weeks of 40C+ temps and fruit stewing on the years...we need a compromise Glen.
Happy snowmen.

Glen,

I heard you are having a terrible time of it as far as navigation goes. But, yes, fresh fallen snow is beautiful. Enjoy it if you can.

Hey Glen!
I wanted you to know I really enjoyed reading this one of SNOW. I have a pic of my grand daughter and a friend of hers walking home from school in their subdivision in the fresh falling snow and I just caught her as she was scooping up a handful of it and putting it to her tongue to taste the icy treat. ONe of my favorite photos. If there was a way to attach it here, I would, but don't see any.
Anyway...this is very good and evokes for all who read it how it feels to be in the middle of winter's grip.
