That Snow Poet (That's No Poet?) - Poem by Chuck Audette

Ahhh, the fresh canvas of new fallen snow
and the promise of beer-bloated bladder
no pencil, but my pen is, well, you know..
(to a true poet, size doesn't matter)

I claim nothing such, but this mighty oak
begs for a sonnet or three
so upon it I plant acorny joke
and spout forth my pee-a-tree

and I saved some ink, too, for the crisp clean ground
and my rhymes were sharp and biting
but my publisher says a deceit they have found
for it was my wife's handwriting!

    Snow way to treat a lady,
    This is what you need to know,
    You are below the ice ...
    that lies beneath the snow...
    Giving her the credit is not the same ...
    as giving her the blame...

    This is delicious Chuck - there is something eternal and magical about males peeing in snow - lemon letters'n all. Love the silliness and the puns in this one. Gorgeous light-hearted verse. love, Allie xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (Report) Reply

    Direct well the fountain
    Though the neighbours may all point
    Your hands nice and warm
    Holding onto my ball, point?
