Snow Lover's Lament: A Series of Poems
Wx and the City
In general, I try to accept and embrace any weather. But with no significant snow in the D.C. area so far this winter, and cold rain and ice in its place, I must complain just this once. And what better time is there to write poetry than during a cold, gray rain?
This rain makes me want to vacation
In a place with a snow reputation
But here we are now
Must accept: no more plows,
Skis, sleds, ice skates and no jubilation.
Keep reading for more snow poems...
Nyquil Commercial Sound-Alike
Kind of scary
Hair not flattering
Down and dreary
If I had a buck for every time
I was on the wrong side of the rain-snow line
...I'd be rich.
This cold winter rain
Makes me want to run away
Falling, drenching, flowing
Hard to accept in January
