A Child's Delight - Poem by Jonathan Goldman a.k.a JGthepoet

When snow does fall from out the sky
And land upon the ground,
As long as it does not start to thaw
T'will cover all that is around.
In morn a wondrous carpet
Will greet the eyes of folk,
Children will wish it to stay
And others think it but a joke.
Young children when they awake in morn,
Through the window look
To see the thick white blanket there,
And wish to play in it without a care
To protect themselves from the cold.
They wish to tumble and in it run,
Make snowmen and snowballs,
And play continuously with endless fun
But do not heed the calls
Of parents wanting them
To come in from the cold.
