Michigan Snow Day! - Poem by Mary Nagy

Last night they talked about it.
We all prayed so hard it hurt!
I guess it worked cause out my door
there's not a speck of dirt!

The snow has buried everything
that once was in our yard.
Our dog gets lost when he goes out.
(Perhaps we prayed too hard!)

Michigan and snow days........
the two go hand in hand.
We went to sleep while God was making
his winter wonderland.

We watch the list of closings
with eager little eyes.
Then finally.......... they said our school!
Oh you should hear their cries!

The whoops and hollars fill the house
cause now we're all awake.
Let's hop into our snowsuits.
There is so much we can make!

The snow forts and the snowmen
will now occupy our day.
There's really nothing better
than a Michigan Snow Day!

    Mary, when it comes to snow days, you can never pray too hard. A 'cool' poem though... I liked it!

    I know I put a double apostrophe after the 10 but when I submitted, it turned into one. I meant inches not feet.

    We got 10' here. It is so beautiful to look at and this poem takes me back to when I was young.

    For once
    at last
    Paradise in this very moment
    what a blessing
    of memory
    still with you in your secret heart

    I think Detroit got six inches. Mary, that does not make me happy! But I hope you and the kids have a great time! (Report) Reply

    Delightful poem, Mary - you made me share in your excitement! By the way, here in New Hampshire, we're having a snow day, too - we're really getting dumped on. Hey, I think Michigan sent it here... thank you!
