Not much rhymes with slush

or mush.



Nothing rhymes with weather

but tether.



So

Though

The snow

Does blow



This poem about the

"pneumatics, aerodynamics, aerography, aeroscopy, aerology,

barometry, anemometry" (Roget's Thesaurus, "Weather," nouns.)



May not

rhyme-o.



You know,

It's cold

When you're old.



Whether the snuzz does bluzz

Or the snow does blow



Snow is white in the light.

(Unless it's February, which has twenty-eight days and yellow

snow and "i" before "e" except after "c" or on consecutive

Thursdays.)



Come in out of the rain!

I see the idea you're getting at, but it's confusing. Work on getting your point across.   =)

This needs a bit of work. It also confused me and I agree with the last comment, there wasn't much depth to it. I do think it has potential, however. Keep writing.

And check me out? Thanks so much and good luck to you. =)

This peice kinda feels confusing. I feel like its the information part of the poem, rather then the poem. There's not a whole lot of depth to it, but I do like the fact that it's differnt. Check out 11:11 Memories; teen ink raw!
