Winter Poem

Waiting For Snow To Fall

Yearning for snow or anything that makes the heart happy is my inspiration. My enclosed poem, The Day the Snow Finally Came, shares the joy that the first snowfall of the season brings to one's spirit. This poem also expresses that feeling of waiting and the delight that comes when your heart's desire is finally given to you. I have lived in Alaska my entire life and love waiting for the first snowfall of the year. Knowing it must come is always a special time for me.

The Day The Snow Finally Came

Published on March 13, 2017

"It's the middle of winter," they would say,
But I just stared in dismay.
"How could it be winter without a blanket of snow?"
They said, "We do not know."

I waited hours, I waited weeks,
Yet you could still see those mountain peaks.
"The snow will not come this year," I thought,
Not a single dot.

I wanted to build a beast of a snowman this year,
And sled down those snow hills with no fear.
Ski around the maze of trails with ease,
Seeing all the lovable white trees.

Then one day I saw something fall,
And it was so very small.
There were millions of them coming.
Oh, it was stunning!

The sun made the snow sparkle like glitter.
It was a real homerun hitter!
Today the snow will fall all day,
Leaving a path of fun on its way.

I immediately had chills run up my spine.
This is my heart's sunshine.
I love the snow so very much,
And I ran outside to hear it crunch.
