No Mail Today - Poem by John McCornack

In the quiet country side west of Yukon
Families wait for mail with anticipation
But today mail boxes will not be opened
Because of major ice storm devastation

Electricity has decided to take a holiday
As many postal workers remain at home
But tomorrow the mail truck will return
Bringing happiness on the roads I roam
