Storrs, US

A summer of humidity

Engendered much stupidity,

An intellectual go-slow

Redeemed by gateaux and Pernod.


How I wish for cooling breezes.

Heat begone! Where are the freezes?

Oh, let the ice come in a rush.

I long to drink –and walk through – slush.


Snow falls from high, piles up below.

Glide on it fast, creep along slow

Like polar bears on an ice floe.

Be very careful how you go.


Winter comes in blasts and trickles,

Icicles hang like popsicles,

Crystals carouse, dance and gyro,

Crown the earth with a white chapeau.


Blizzards blanket the ground below,

Set the scene below aglow,

Create a heavenly tableau.

Welcome winter. On with the snow!

Stoops in Snow. Martin Lewis

Snow in the City, Snow in the Country

White streets and sidewalks
Robed in a snowy carpet
Heavenly roadway.

Cars whirl in a square dance
Pedestrians pirouette
Snow steals center stage.

Suddenly a snowstorm!
Cars and people disappear.
Nature’s magic trick.

Sniffing and stomping
In the field, a new pathway
Deer tracks in the snow.

After the snowstorm
Clear crystals shine in sunlight
The world born anew.

Let It Snow: Snow in the City, Snow in the Country
