Shoveling Snow

Here comes the county snow plow down the street,

     He will clear the street of snow and that's neat!

         I'd scooped snow, how I did strive,

            To move heaped snow from my drive!

               He just grinned dumping more snow at my feet!

Fun limerick, come and live in sunny South africa - no snow in Johannesburg maybe only once in every 5 or 6 years, and only for a day! However remember my dad scooping snow from in front of our door whilst we lived in England for 2 years! Poetry wishes, Jennifer.

Thank you Jennifer for your generous comments. Since it is dead winter here in Colorado, I sure would appreciate a warmer climate such ads South Africa right now! Best to you for the coming New Year and best wishes as you continue your poetical journey - Bob

Thanks Andrea - snow job indeed! The kids got me an electric snow plow one Christmas and oddly, its kinda fun to "shovel" snow with it. Take care and keep warm - its cold here in Colo!
