Coming Down Now - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich
It was a long way down,
not all of us had that far
and to go into such turbulence,
what did not help at all was
that snowflakes naturally are
not what you would call substantial,
or heavy, so we are at the mercy
of winds, other flakes, hail, drops
of rain, even the rare bird out
and about in the freezing weather.
But what makes it all worth it,
really worth it is the how shall I say
wonderful smile on the faces of
the thousands of children and, of course,
the grown-ups, who are just as happy,
although a bit more reserved about it.
So, when I get there, there isn't the slightest
the most miniscule doubt about it,
I am most welcome. Makes me feel warm.
