SNOW IS LOVELY TILL IT's NOT! (Addishans)

Snow I love when falls
Quietly - silent - as it lays
Lands on my hair
Caress my flesh
My boots crunch's the newly falling snow
Underfoot
Children - sounds of their delight - all around
Puppy dogs barking - jumping up to catch the snowflakes
On their tungs - are the children - happy sounds of those
Now enjoying the fun of fresh snow

I recall in years past - snow laying so deep
older kids cuting large snow blokes - builldiong yes - eglows - like Estgemos!
Has sean on the telly!

All to soon, the seean will change
Snow melting - replased slush like sluge - that freezes
Sludge dirty - filthy - yelow stainde - by dogs - by men - out of pubs!
Bladers bursting! Men court short! court short of the loo!
Now ice underfoot - people of all ages sliping - falling - breaking bones
Pipes frezing - bursting!
Cars - trucks - trains - traped in snow drifts! Havock - everywhere!
The fun of snow - now not such fun!

Those with out shelter!
With out homes!
With out heating!
Coverde in snow!
Will frezz to death this winter!

So true! It is a thing of beauty to see it fall, and a much different situation to live with it for months and see it slush and ice and lose its appeal. Great poem.

Made me chuckle, Ken! I remember so fondly all those scenes you so aptly describe. And, yes, slush is a mess. When I was a kid, Snow stayed all winter and slush was a sign of spring!
