WAKING UP TO A SNOWY DAY
and post notes and photos about your poem like JAN ALLISON.
White flakes of snow float down on to the ground,
they make the earth look so fresh, clean and bright.
Flakes twirl as they fall, they don't make a sound,
and the ground shines with soft snow of pure white.
Young kids wake up at dawn, climb from their beds,
and then draw back their dark drapes with great glee.
They eat a quick snack, then dust down their sleds,
and say 'Mum we'll be home in time for tea'!
Kids put on snow boots and snug soft warm clothes,
then whizz down the crisp white snow on the hills.
They wear socks and gloves to warm hands and toes,
eyes shine bright; kids don't feel the ice cold chills!
It’s great to see kids have fun as they play,
they’ll wish it could snow all night and all day!
