Take Our Snow Please


As out the window,
I look, more snow today,
have only one thing to say,
take our snow please.

Six week-ends straight,
snow, snow every where,
have only one thing to say,
take our snow please, today.

So much snow, so much cold,
snow in the streets, snow in the yard,
snow on the car, snow on my shoe,
have only one thing to say,
take our snow please, we don't know what to do.

Winter, oh winter please end,
all of this snow, we don't really want it,
snow falling, flakes dropping
have only one thing to say,
take our snow please, don't delay.

    Hey! I liked this one enormously. Great read and I loved the subject. I 'snow' what you mean, not that we get as much as you do I presume.

    Jim>>>The most awesome quality surrounding Poetic verse, is flavour & choice...
    I can't imagine, anygood conniseur of contemporary or traditional literature, finding
    the works of bothDickenson, and Poe, as being mundane...yet 2 of my fwellow poets on board here, think just that.Does that make these 2 classic poets feckless
    and boresome? Of course not.Your Cchoice to utelize refrained vesage, in this work, in my opinion...works. Ialso found the general construction of your work to be of commendable quality, as well as your funly topic of YOUR rightful choice...
