It Came From the West

March 12, 2008

It came from the west







that powdery white pest






It fell on the rooftops of red brick houses



It blew itself next to the little small mouses














It went through town







Going around and around






People asleep, Children asleep





No one around to see or peep

















Who is it and why are you here?




Blowing strong winds to give us great fear


All of a sudden it is gone






the sun comes up and it dawn





It has left it’s whiteness behind





Did he just leave it to fool our minds?















The next thing you know






white is here, there, everywhere





I pick some up and throw it in the air



What is this called I haven’t seen it before


This is snow my friend,






This is snow my dear!!
