White lay on Schuman lake the snow
The snow lay white on Schuman lake
this afternoon. The ice
gleamed in the sun. I went to take
a picture. It looked nice.
White lay on Schuman lake the snow,
I took my phone to capture
where near the bank the cattails grow.
Was careless in the rapture.
White lay the snow on Schuman lake.
I took a step – and crash
did not forsee the ice would break.
my foot went in with splash.
On Schuman lake, the snow lay white.
I wore nice shoes and suit!
The mud was deep, the ice had bite.
I wish I’d worn a boot.
On Schuman lake white lay the snow.
I hobbled to my car
and drove away with dripping toe
because I’d gone too far.
