‘Sno Fun!

To the Editor:

Is there anything nicier,
sugar ‘n spicier,
anything more sweet or grandish,
than to see falling snow
setting all hearts aglow,
making everything so Fairylandish?

Each flake makes me quiver
with wonder,
I shiver
as softly I sing “Jingle Bells” -
Ah, the beauty, the thrill,
as it climbs up my sill
with its luscious white whipped-creamy swells.

I give up counting flakes,
each succeeding one makes
a more mountainous mound out my door.
Why does it keep falling?
It’s getting appalling -
I’ll never get out any more!

Now the power’s gone

,
no TV and no heat,
and my batteries are down to two!
Won’t someone please stop it?!
I can’t see atop it -
the snowplows can’t even get through!

They’ll find me next Spring
frozen to everything,
what the heck am I going to do?!
I have had it!
Enough!
Who invented this stuff?
You know,
I just hate snow,
don’t you?
