First Snow


It's been snowing all day.  It's the first snow.  The ground is still warm, so the snow barely carpets the grass.  Still.  It's an opportunity to reflect what's ahead.         



    Winter Wishes

I want my snowman to stay
            like a statue
     standing forever still.

I want my grandchildren to clap
            woolen mittens
     and laugh happy songs.

I want the sun to shine gently
          no scorching rays
        melting children’s fun.
