The Flood - Poem by Bonnie B Long

The sun shines glistening on the snow
Temperatures rising so it will all go
River is high before the snow's gone
Where will the water go onto your lawn?

Its flooded before so many times
Over its banks it climbs and climbs
Flooding the streets and the homes too
What will all the residents do

Will they stay this time or will they go
Only time will tell of this I know
Last time it was ten days before it went down
To the final relief of our home town

The damage was extensive
The repairs expensive
will it be that bad again
Pray that it won't amen

Only time will tell after this warm spell
When all the snow's gone time will tell
Will the snow melt up north contribute to flood
If it does my oh my they're be lots of mud

So here's to warm weather and the sun's rays
And to having many more better days
Days without floods or any more flooding
May all the flowers start with their budding
