Treasure Island

Rich Reitz

(July 8,1954 / Sunbury, PA)

Shovel Snow! Shovel Snow! Shovel Snow!


Oh, the weather outside is frightful,
And this storm is not delightful.
I'm stuck, and my car won't go.
Shovel snow, shovel snow, shovel snow!

It doesn't show signs of stopping,
And the temperature is dropping.
It's just about five below.
Shovel snow, shovel snow, shovel snow!

Outside, everything now is white,
And I hate going out in the storm.
But as long as I bundle tight,
Shoveling will keep me warm.

This shoveling is a bummer.
How I wish that it was summer.
That Groundhog has got to go! ! !
Shovel snow (shovel snow) ,
Shovel snow (shovel snow) ,
Shovel Snow! Shovel Snow! Shovel Snow!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

After cleaning out my driveway for the 5th time in four days, I'm tired of looking at all that white stuff. So I wrote this while sitting in my Jeep last night. I just hope no one decides to record it!

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
