Write a poem about a snow memory.
The snow would fall, we would scream,
Push our faces to the window screen.
Watched the news, is it too slick?
Please dear God let it stick!
With school closed we found snow suits,
Shoved our feet in last year’s boots
Grabbed our cousins and off we’d go,
To the golf course quick with sleds in tow!
The wind was wild, our screams were shrill.
We raced our sleds down the golf course hill.
Flying down fast then up the track,
No golfers there to hold us back.
Cold and wet, we trudged home slowly,
Thoughts of cocoa kept us going.
We’d fall to the ground, “go on ahead…”
“The cold is killing me…I’ll soon…be…dead…”
At home we’d throw our clothes about
“Hang them up!” Our mom would shout.
We drank our cocoa and thawed and then,
“You want to go back out again?”
Pulled down our barely dry snow suits,
shoved our feet in last year’s boots.
Now it’s your turn!
