Winter Snow – A Poem

Silently the snow fell in the night, blanketing everything uncovered, as one blankets a sleeping child. Plants and trees were smothered by nature’s ice-cold quilt.

To all who lie in bed listening for the snowfall, excited at what awaits the daybreak, winter carried a surprise. An arctic blast with huge snowfalls, as icicles formed on rooftops like frozen ornaments hanging off tree branches.

Snow dusting over cars and trucks, while sprinkling softly over roads and lakes. The frigid cold wind blew with no remorse, children playing in the snow would run inside to warm their frozen hands.

The sun softened on the horizon, and the snow gently crept into the past. Snowmen shrank, fields once white with snow turned brown as the snow slowly vanished.

Once again, old man winter came to visit and blanketed everything in town. Soon all that white stuff would go away by itself. That winter-wonderland would turn into vapor without having to melt.

    1. I pray everything is going well with you and your family, and the snow has finally started melting or has melted.
      This was a bad snowstorm and it hit Texas with a bang. There are still people without power and water.
      I love Winter and snow but am so happy it’s melting, and people are finally having their power and water restored. There are so many others still without power or water.

      I pray you and your family stay safe and warm.

      1. We got out yesterday for the first time since it hit…I was under the weather today…sinuses…but no fever…
        I hate to see snow melt but this time I’m happy about it…yea a lot of people lost power also…it was awful.

        1. That’s great that you all were able to get out today. The weather was beautiful here in the DFW area.

          I am glad it’s just sinuses bothering you, and no fever. Mine have been flaring up here lately too.

          I agree with you…I hate to see the snow melting, but this arctic blast caused a lot of damage…it was awful!!
