SNOW N'ICE by Kathleen

The poem below, Snow n’ ice, snow n’ ice, written by Kathleen Clark, is fitting for those of you who are experiencing a winter wonderland through your living room windows. Enjoy!

A winter storm’s, not s’nice
Houses and cars are buried beneath
Slippery sidewalks knock us off our feet.
Snowplows rumble everywhere
With a rhythmic crunch that fills the air
Schools and businesses have shut down
In every countryside and town.
The long-legged stride of winter
Tramps heavily across the pristine fields
And stillness prevails as residents
Watch from crystal-encrusted windows.
Heavy bear claws of snow grip swaying evergreens
As blustery blizzard sweeps around the eaves
Hungry birds settle in clusters on bare branches
Then swoop as one to peck at feeders full of seeds.
Snow n’ ice, snow n’ ice
Temperatures dipping to minus
For sports lovers it’s very nice
Skiing, tobogganing, snow tubing in the biting wind.
Energetic children bundled like Eskimos
Creating snowmen and angels,
Sledding down slick, snow-packed hills
Enjoy the season’s special thrills.
Amid frigid wind and flying flakes
Snow boarders twist and turn, snowmobiles
Bounce and swerve over mogul ridges
Cruising to a stop long after daylight.
Snow n’ ice, snow n ice
Becomes a double-edged knife;
A smooth, cool slice of pleasure
Or serrated with hardship and strife.
