Snow Day ~ Poem ~ Childhood

Snow Day

He slunk past the stairs

With gloves in hand

Hat pulled tight, scarf in place

The call of fresh snow was to

Irresistable

 

Like an explorer in new lands

He placed one foot in front of the other

Staking out his snow fort

“This is mine!” he roared

 

From the window he saw

His mother smile

Stomping his foot down

He declared to the snowmen

Guarding his keep

“Only mother’s with hot chocolate are allowed!”

 

Seconds later

Holding his cup

He wished everyday was a

Snow day
