kenneth william snow Poems

All I want for Christmas is Peace
All I want is war to cease
In the homes and on the street
Peace on earth and joy to greet

i promenade through passages
of crusted, concrete memory
and revel in plasticity


Saturday morning
brisk, late-fall chill,

I am a yellow dog
who would rather be
a toad. Too many frogs

she fell in lust with you
what was she to do?
little versed in sex
her first would be your next

I am Snow, I am
I am cold, be damned
I am silent long
I am silent song


I have no gifts of gold to give
No diamonds, cash or cars
No frilly clothes, nor fancy trips
I give to you the stars

Henry David Thoreau was not a recluse or hermit
It’s true he spent many hours in solitude at Walden,
writing and contemplating nature; however
he frequented the town of Concord when the

Another chance to be the cad
Presents itself in guise of lad
Intent on causing mindless grief
Through wicked strokes of master thief

typically Memorial Day
is cold and gray

He pushed his 300-pound body
as father withdrew
way back to the Delaware
to Thunder Road and Wounded Knee

Brother Jesse thinks he’s black
You and I know better than that
Brother George thinks he is white
You and I know that’s not right

Flecks of wisdom in my beard
Short gray hairs twisting weird
Reminding me of days long past
When life for me went by too fast


absurdity reeks
sun bleached shore to mountain peak
apathy now speaks


Lust, you vicious fiend
Clad in cloak of earnest love;

Yestermorrow days
Of hazy summer substance

Haiku, like beauty
Is beheld by diverse eyes

thursday night folly,
the weekend hard on my heels;
monday morning death


Watchful walk through woods
Reveals ecological

The Best Poem Of kenneth william snow

Peace For Christmas

All I want for Christmas is Peace
All I want is war to cease
In the homes and on the street
Peace on earth and joy to greet

Underneath my Christmas tree
Christmas morn I hope to see
Headlines blaring PEACE ON EARTH!
For men of naught and men of worth

Wrap peace up in shiny foil
Seal it tight so it won't spoil
Put it on a freezer shelf
Keep it fresh, our future wealth

Take it out at dinner time
Share a slice of peace of mind
Pass it out to all our Brothers
Sisters, Children and our Mothers

Use the peace meal, use it wisely
Digest it well and let our eyes see
Peace on earth, good will to men
Need not wait until the end

In our homes on Christmas Day
Preach of Peace as only way
To be happy, to be sure
To meet Peace at Heaven's door

Hi Kenneth, I really enjoy your poems. However, as you may know, this site has some vigorous (bruised?) atheists and agnostics - so don't expect much comment. But don't be discouraged - keep at it, which I'm sure you will. You have a delightful musical ear for verse. Best, Michael.

Just re-read your poems, Kenneth. I'm envious beyond shame, of your lyrical ear. Thanks again.
