Inspired by the recent lack of wintry weather, here is my short snow poem to bring back those cosy memories.
When I grew up it used to snow for days in December and January and yet these days we are lucky to get a brief sprinkle. Snow is a feature of a traditional winter and represents so many things. For me, it is a blanket of comfort and beauty which brings back so many recollections.
I miss the snow,
With its beautiful glow.
Miss the buttery frost,
Without it I am lost.
I miss the fun,
Get fed up of just sun,
Miss the snowflakes,
And the gleam the snow makes.
I miss snowball fights,
And cold, hot chocolate nights.
Miss the spiky holly,
And the winter jolly.
I miss the warmth and feeling,
Of gloves and hats; so appealing.
Miss the glistening scenery,
That sweep the memories back to me.
I would absolutely love some snowy days as they are part of our way of life. As a kid, I recall long enough Sunday walks in the whitened Fens. Global warming seems to be putting an end to snowy England. So yes indeed… I miss snow.
