The Gift This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
Predicted snow creates snow-day rumors
Everyone starts to chatter
As the first flake is spotted

Teachers forewarn about driving home
And of course the delay on due dates
Yet suspicion still runs in minds

Home at last with homework to do
Contemplating if completion is necessary
Leads one to watch the news

Forecasts predict a heavy downpour
More hope is instilled
Time is the last factor left

Morning comes with the radio blaring
Footsteps are heard running to the TV
Mother Nature has delivered her gift

Wow, I can totally relate to that since I live in NC, too! Actually, quite close to Durham also. :) Great poem!

The flow of this poem is really consistent.
And, it's so true. Thats exactly what happens when a possible snow day comes along.
