Angels are Cleaning

Written by: Laura Mckenzie

White blankets over the town 
Soft and cold with little sound 
A small child asked, “Where does snow come from Mom” 
Will, I believe the angels are cleaning house 
Oh well that must really have a mess up there
“Yes I laughed”!
Mom, I know where the mess is coming from 
You do?
The angels are crying from all the sadness and war going on  
Right?
“Gasp” 
Well doesn’t water freeze? 
Yes, so they must be crying again
Mom, I hope they stop because Christmas is coming
I like to play in snow, but not if the angels are sad 
Everyone should be happy at Christmas right?
