Take Our Snow Please - Poem by jim foulk

As out the window,
I look, more snow today,
have only one thing to say,
take our snow please.

Six week-ends straight,
snow, snow every where,
have only one thing to say,
take our snow please, today.

So much snow, so much cold,
snow in the streets, snow in the yard,
snow on the car, snow on my shoe,
have only one thing to say,
take our snow please, we don't know what to do.

Winter, oh winter please end,
all of this snow, we don't really want it,
snow falling, flakes dropping
have only one thing to say,
take our snow please, don't delay.

    Congrats on being poet of the day, Jim! I read this poem and your Thanks, Rain. Your life seems to be so much like mine here in Delhi, which has a climate of extremes. When it rains, it rains like hell; in summer, it becomes hot like a furnace and hot air, which we call loo, blows outside. In winter, though it doesn't snow, it becomes really cold; this year was an exception; cold weather set in only after 7 Jan.16. (Report) Reply

    An awesome imagery depicting the condition of every human in the place that had a snowfall for a prolonged time and the snow appears as omnipresent and praying the nature/ God to end the winter and snowfall. Thanks for sharing.10 points. (Report) Reply

    Hey! I liked this one enormously. Great read and I loved the subject. I 'snow' what you mean, not that we get as much as you do I presume.

    Jim>>>The most awesome quality surrounding Poetic verse, is flavour & choice...
    I can't imagine, anygood conniseur of contemporary or traditional literature, finding
    the works of bothDickenson, and Poe, as being mundane...yet 2 of my fwellow poets on board here, think just that.Does that make these 2 classic poets feckless
    and boresome? Of course not.Your Cchoice to utelize refrained vesage, in this work, in my opinion...works. Ialso found the general construction of your work to be of commendable quality, as well as your funly topic of YOUR rightful choice...
