Snow …

 

a single flake of snow alights

to stir the heart with quick delight

distract the mind from autumns leaves

to thoughts of gifts wrapped under trees

 

a thousand flakes of snow fall down

to gently kiss the cooling ground

summers chores must soon be done

excitement grows, theres more to come!

 

a million flakes of snow descend

putting summers dreaming to an end

on skis and sleds the children play

joyously live their glorious day

 

a billion flakes of snow pile up

bringing frantic commerce to a stop

all have locked themselves inside

for the groundhog yet again has lied

 

an infinity of snow around me streams

dashing hopes and plans and dreams

it is too much, it befogs my head

I've had enough! Im going to bed
