SNOW, SNOW, LET IT FLOW
Snow, snow you flow so much oh no!
The wind howling, whistling around every nook and cranny
Everything is so cold to the touch
The window pane freezing cold
The trees bending, bowing, trying to stand upright precariously
The wind from the East strong and powerful like a beast
Hungry for power, sovereignty
The tiny flakes of snow swirling, curling
Just like a maelstrom
Scrambling frenzied vortex
Sucking all the remains of winters fallen debris around and around
Oh so cold and frenzied outside
But here I stand and watch the frenzy
Snuggled up and warm inside
Warm enough to be in the minimalistic
Mother Nature intention
Coffee in hand, warming soothing the ravages of the exterior
Oh snow, snow!
Baron and bare
That much you dare!
But we do not despair
Spring is on its way hooray!
The flowers start to shoot and bloom
Comforting, warming the room
Just like a rose budding, and in full bloom
Oh snow, snow you won’t be here for long
