Snow please go away

Snow Snow Snow Snow
Please go away and come another time
You fill the streets with your blanket of ice
Turning the land into illusory of snowflakes
Covering the ground with vasty snow-packs
Taking away the sights of the vivid green grasses
And leaving only what seems like skating rinks.

As you unleash your wintry flakes in torrential aura
I look through my blurred window to catch a glimpse
I see the vastness of white fall of virgin ice you make
Though, prima facie, the ice seems strong
But it’s devoid of that thickness to bear the weight 
My feet bestow.

You leave me too cold to walk
I walk like I’m learning how to walk
In fear that I may be tripped by your slippery packs
I walk only on the virgin ice you create
Because it seems like a safe haven for my shoe soles
And I look back when I walk past, what do I see?
Only my footprints on the virgin ice.

Like a ghost, you fall at night and straddles along the day
You’re such an insatiable culero
Please go away and come back another time.

    this is fantastic writing, chuma!!! I really enjoyed reading this one. I hate the snow and did a parody of that song Let it snow. I called it Go away go away go away.

    I hate the snow too. It's been here all week and shows no sign of thawing. Nice poem!
