We are enjoying snow

Snow falling is always exciting at our house. Today it is coming down here. Mara wrote a poem about it that I thought you might enjoy......


The snow is falling down

In ones and couples and clumps

It is beautiful.

I am working in the garden

Digging bulbs. I do not notice

The snow come down.

The boy on the road

Cries it first

“It is snowing!” And I listen.

I tell Mama

The news

And she smiles.

I grab a hat and

A scarf

I run to the marsh.

I sit on a log

Fallen over the water-ice

And I watch.

They are slender-pointed

Some are fat

They are all wonder-full.

My soul thrills and

I thank the One

Who did such work.

Does He sit above

Making and sending them


I wonder what the muskrat in

His den thinks

Of the snow.

The last snowfall melted

All away. I hope this

Will not.

But early next spring will I

Wonder why

I ever wished for snow?

I go inside and

I sit

And watch the snow fall.

The snow comes down

It nose-dives

Then falls up again.

My heart almost breaks

It swells so far

God’s snow is beautiful.

GREAT work Mara!

We still have no snow here. Which is very odd. Normally we get it before the end of October. We've had a warm fall overall.
