The snows were here, for a minute anyway…


The snow fell
Yet once again
Perhaps fortunately,
The wind picked it up
And dumped it
No snowmen
Smiling back
As we drew back
The curtains.
Just the usual
Roads and pathways
Where the less than wary
And the quite frankly careless
Are also dumped
On their now sore behinds
Only to rise up
Red with embarrassment
And with much more care.

But yet once again
That fall of snow
Caused chaos all the way
Schools closed down
Public transport ground
To a halt
It is very much
The British way.
And even as airports struggled
With this fall of snow
Remember there’s
Much more up there
And only
One place it can go!!
