As I traveled around the neighborhood I noticed how beautiful the snow looks when it is still white and pristine. I took these pictures of a golf course nearby because it was so beautiful and wanted to share them with you.
Here is a poem that I wrote from the first snow storm. We have had a second storm since adding up to two feet of snow. It is wonderful to look at but not to drive in case any of you are who are in a warmer climate wanted to know. Kids love it to make great snowballs and snowmen. I am beyond that stage since I get too cold when I am outside in this weather. The temps have dropped to the teens and single digits some nights. Brrrrrrr! Pile on the blankets!
THE FIRST (OR SECOND) SNOW
As I look outside my window tonight
I watch the snowflakes drifting by.
The world never looks so clean and white
as when the first snow falls from the thick clouds in the sky.
As a child I always loved the snow
because there would be no school for the day
and off to sledding I could go,
having lots of fun in my own carefree way.
Now that I am an adult I look at the snow
with a different point of view
and think, “Oh, I wish to work I didn’t have to go!”
I don’t enjoy driving in the ice and snow that I must go through.
Oh, I wish I was a child again,
so that I could go
sledding with my friends
out in the glorious fluffy, white snow!
(The one good thing about now being retired – I don’t have to go work anymore! I can work from home on my writing. Yippee!)
Thank you for stopping by to read my blog.
