The Snow Has Fallen

THE  SNOW  HAS  FALLEN

The snow has fallen to the ground

It never even made a sound

The rain falls with a patter pat

Snow falling never sounded like that

Everything is covered in a blanket of white

It’s a joy to look out on such a picturesque sight

On the streets are beautiful cars

All are equal and show no dents or flaws

Children don’t pay attention to the cold

Playing in the snow never gets old

Even dogs like the white fluff

For they dig around with their nose in the stuff

They come in with snow stuck to their fur

Shaking it off, looking like a big blur

For children, all too soon the snow fades

The sun comes out, and melts it away

Then they become grumpy and crabby

They definitely show that they are unhappy

Their Mom calls them inside, to learn to bake

Keeping them amazed by what they make

Spring

SPRING

Spring will arrive very soon.

Sleeping trees and flowers will awaken and bloom,

You will be able to see it everywhere.

The fresh new scent will be in the air.

First all that’s there is a little green.

Then the beautiful colors come on the scene.

Next come the birds and the bees,

To enjoy the awakening flowers and trees.

Animals awaken from their hibernation,

To join this wonderful celebration.

Soon the babies begin to arrive.

All of nature has truly “come alive”.

People also notice the change.

Things in their life they rearrange.

Adolescents give each other kisses and hugs,

When they first experience “puppy love”.

Adults join all of this newness too,

When their love for each other they renew.

At last all of the music you can hear.

And know that it’s truly the spring of the year.

Autumn

AUTUMN

 

Hear the rustling of the leaves

Feel the crisp autumn breeze

The colors in their vast array

Seem to change every day

Summer’s now in the past

Winter’s cold is coming fast

Enjoy the moment now at hand

Autumn’s the time before winter’s rest

Hibernating animals build their nest

The time when nature has slowed her pace

Time to show off a colorful face

She will rest until the spring

And then wake up to begin again

The Snow

THE SNOW

 

The snow is gently coming down,

As silently it covers the ground.

All around is a blanket of snow,

Announcing winter so all may know.

Children are excited and squeal with glee,

At this wonderful sight they see.

To go outside they can hardly wait,

So many amazing things they can create.

Mothers smile and shake their head,

The wet mess they can’t help but dread.

Then they remember being a child,

And at the falling snow going “wild”.

Looking at it from a different point of view,

The wonder and excitement they feel too.

They realize why their children jump and squeal,

And just what it is inside that their children feel.

For a little while they too are in an awesome place,

At the sight of snow, with a smile on their face.
