Sharing at dVerse Open Link Night Week #133. A wee rhyme, just for fun.
And yes, it is snowing here…again!!!
Soft snowflakes land upon pane
and blanket pristine white again,
we watch the lovely crystals fall—
a magic world transformed for all.
They seem to fall in endless chain,
upon the fence and weathervane…
the ice is damming on the eaves;
our roads are riddled with frost heaves.
The winter snow just doesn’t wane:
black ice and potholes mar terrain.
The fender-benders block the street,
as sand and salt supplies deplete.
This weather’s driving me insane,
can feel a pulsing in my brain—
as once more I don boot and hat
and curse that giant rodent rat.
Another snowfall...oh, the pain
in my back and shoulder reign!
The winter white has lost its thrill,
am gunning for that groundhog Phil!
