Snow Day - Poem by Kim May

I sit in bed
A computer in my lap
Every five minutes, checking a weather map

They said it would snow
It will happen overnight
But I'll stay up longer even if before snow comes light

All I want is a long lazy snow day
It's 12a.m and schools are already delayed

But where is the snow?
What do meteorologists know?

I'm burned out, stressed out
All I think about is school
Assignment upon assignment..it's hard to stay cool

You don't know how much I want this
My pj's are inside out!
There's leftover snow on the ground...
But a snow day I'm starting to doubt

I'm feel my sleep time diminishing
But I won't sleep without finishing

My lookout for snow
Anticipation has grown

It's at it's fullest
My eyelids at their heaviest

I want to wake up with thirty inches of snow
I want a ton of texts saying: ALL SCHOOLS ARE CLOSED

I want a level three snowstorm
Keep everyone in

Snow days are nice
'cause everyone wins.
