Poetry Friday: Snowpiaries

poetry-friday-1-1

 

According to the calendar we still have a week of autumn, but winter has definitely arrived! We had snow for Thanksgiving, and it seems like it’s snowed every day this week. Here are two poems inspired by the recent weather.

i.

After the blizzard,

hydrangeas blanketed in white:

snowpiaries.

ii.

Giggling, laughing,

Come on, let’s go!

Sliding, gliding,

Through the snow.

Skidding, crashing,

Watch out! Oh, no!

Tumbling, crumbling,

into a heap.

Brushing, rushing,

up we leap.

Giggling, laughing,

Come on, let’s go!

  1. We don’t get snow down here in the south of the south, but your poems make me want to grab a sled and take to the slopes. My students wrote snowy poems after Robert Frost that came out a bit pensive. Was it the snow or Frost that set that tone?
