Snow

Snow

A Poem by Steve Kittell
"

Snow

"

Soon it’s fall, but first back to school,
days getting shorter, nights get cool.
Then the winter and with it snow,
wrapping the world in its glow. 

image

We’ll build forts, make balls to throw.
So many things to do in the snow,
sledding and skiing, rolling in white.
Hoping for more snow every night. 

image

Morning’s good news, stay home from class.
Fun things to do with time to pass,
make a snowman with rocks for eyes,
that sees all in cold winter skies.

image

We’ll stay in and play or just talk.
Then shovel a long path to walk,
to the street, though nowhere to go.
Everything’s closed because of the snow. 

image

Crusty piles; high, dirty and gray,
wetter and smaller each new day.
Snowman’s withered, springs on the way,
time to make up for our snow day. 

image

Wake up one morning, snow’s no more,
instead there’s flowers by my door.
Springs arrived and welcomed by all,
summers next and followed by fall 

image

Like the seasons our life goes round.
Searching for answers already found.
Around and around we all go,
waiting for summer, then for snow.
