When first it fell - all powdery white
I loved it.
Skipped playfully making snowmen
Throwing snowballs
Giggling youthfully
Took a million photographs
Went on Facebook
Told my stories
Listened to theirs
And then the thaw came
Fell painfully
Slush saturated
Older stiffer
Confidence gone
I dream of summer

    Snow is fun for the kids of all ages but drivers hate it ... let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! First fallen snow, snow melting, it's all snow! :-) Liked this poem! ken

    Liz, your write gave me a look at snow from a child's point of view and from an adult when the playfulness has worn off.. enjoyed this ;)
