Icy Road

Icy Road

Oh, glassy look beneath my foot 

Easy, I groped like a child just starting to walk 

One limb forward, went off the hollow

One foot behind wobbly to follow


Both  arms flailing helplessly at sides 

Slowly, carefully I took another stride 

Sweaty hands, heart beating to fight 

The scare that crept up my might 


Some cars went off the road 

Skidded and dumped their load 

Into a pavement or down a hill

That gave onlookers the chills


I made a brave try  to proceed 

Attempting to crawl through the slippery way  

Boldly, I looked down the icy road 

Overcame with fear so I must pray
