On the Eve of A Snow Day (SOLC 14 of 31)

This poem was originally written Feb. 8, 2017 for another Snow Day, but it seemed appropriate to post today given that many of us got our snow day calls early last evening.


On the eve of a snow day,

Called early in the night,

There is pleasure, excitement,

Pure delight.


A no-alarm morning

PJs all day.

Some work,

Some movies and

Definitely some play!


It’s a gift from Mother Nature,

Not one to rebuff.

It’s a day to refuel

And it’ll be just enough.


Take in the white blanket

Of snow covered trees.

Rejoice in the quiet, the peace,

Of the noiseless streets.


Be still in your mind,

Be still in your soul,

Treasure this gift,

Take the time to feel whole.

    You never cease to amaze me. You always seem to have an instinctive way of playing with words.

    I really need to stop reading your posts and move on, but loved this poem “On the Eve of a Snow Day.” PJs, movies, play, quiet, peace, stillness – what’s not to love about this day?
