A BLANKET OF SNOW ,

The country is covered
with a dazzling blanket of snow ,
Oh what a beautiful sight
Yes a wonderful glistening show ,
Snow covered branches of trees
heavenly laden sashay down low ,
Children build snowmen
and happily roll around
On the billowy snow covered ground ,
A sight to most of them
never before found ,

While a lack of traffic and birds chirping
makes an eerie sound ,
Provisions in shops quickly running out ,
While children play and gleefully shout ,
Transport woefully comes to a full stop,
And it’s almost impossible
for most to safely get to a shop ,

Sleet and rain now on its way ,
Children sadly watch their snowmen
melt and drift away ,
Bringing an end
to our snow filled days ,

DEIRDRE O KEEFFE,
