It's Snowing Outside

Updated on February 21, 2019

Oh Wonderful Snow

So bright

So nice

Give me a handful of that beautiful, fluffy, white powder

Cover the houses

Cover every car and tree

I feel you made the snow just for me

I rush to put my gloves on

Where is my hat?

I need my hat?

I can't go outside without my hat

Bundling up tight

Putting my boots on quickly

I am going to have so much fun

Kicking the snow with my feet

Lifting it in the air

It is early in the morning

No neighbors are awake

Soon they will have to get up for work

Then I will hear the shovels across the driveway

The car windshield being brushed

The bright car lights shining in my direction

The day will continue

With the plows going up and down the street

Cars leaving track marks across the smooth surface

I will look for animal footprints in the magical wonderland

Where I can go in any direction

Enjoying what nature has brought and no man can stop

Leaving all my worries and troubles behind

        Chitrangada Sharan I think everyone should experience snow once in their life. The cold air fills your lungs as you look around and see white in all directions. You look up in the sky and you see these wonderful tiny little flakes falling. Within minutes you see them all over you too. As a child, we would stick out our tongue and try to catch one. If you are lucky the snow would be able to stick together. Some children roll the snow into a snowball and squeeze it tight and throw it at each other. Not to hurt. Just for fun. As the unexpected snowball hits your jacket it breaks once again into small pieces. Sometimes you miss and it hits the ground exploding. Once you throw a snowball expect one or more back at you. Other children take the snow and build a snowman. They roll the snow into a bigger ball. The size of a beach ball or larger. Then make another one on top of that one. Then the third one on top of that one. Add a couple of sticks for arms and rocks for eyes. A stick for a mouth. A carrot for the nose. Sometimes old buttons down the front. Even a scarf around the neck. There you have it one imaginary living and breathing snowman. One that loves the winter and loves everyone he sees. A small touch of winter coming your way. Thank you so much for reading and sharing my wintery tale. May you come back again only to be teased and pleased with a handful of delicate white crystals that sparkle in the light. Have one great weekend. Starting off with this beautiful Saturday morning.

        Beautifully expressed poem and I can visualise the scenery. Snowfall looks beautiful indeed and it’s but natural for a creative writer, like you to express yourself in these beautiful lines.

        Thank You for sharing!

        Louise Powles I can see how snow can be a pain in the butt. Pretty in pictures and it can get pretty cold and wet in real life. I have to confess I do love a cute snowman. I am surprised after all these years people haven't come out with a snowwoman. That would be a sight for sore eyes. Thank you so much for sharing the wonder. Have a nice Friday.

        Gypsy Rose Lee Yes, snow has a different effect on everybody. When you're young it can be a blast. You see some snow and you can't wait for more. I could stay out all day and play. When you get older and you have to leave earlier to go to work and driving can also be pretty scary. Walking in it can be dangerous especially when there is ice underneath. Thank you for sharing. I am sure the snow didn't last too long. I am happy you are enjoying the good weather most of the time. Have one great day.

        Linda Rogers It can be hard and dangerous when you have lots of snow. I am very lucky this year we had record lows. Please be careful and safe. I hope soon your winter will be over soon and your day goes well. Thank you for sharing some of the good. I am sure all the skiers and the people who make their living plowing are happy. To warmer weather and better days ahead.

        Marlene Bertrand Snow has its place in the world. It seems to make everything beautiful. At least in the beginning. Too much snow can cause some trouble that most people could really do without. I tried to highlight the good and at least bring a touch of winter and a touch of happiness to start our day. Thank you so much for reading and spending a few minutes of fun. Have one lovely day.

        It has been snowing a lot in my area. Your poem captures the scene so beautifully.

        Snow is beautiful but we've had record amounts in Minnesota. It's been incredibly tough to get around & many of us have snow fatigue. I did however enjoy your poem.

        Congrats on the white stuff! I remember it well and spent many freezing years with it coming down until I thought it would never stop. Loved the beauty and also got tired of it. If it by some incredible fluke of nature started snowing here in Daytona Beach I would know it before I looked out because there would be people shouting What the fu--- and no one would know what to do.

        That's a lovely poem. I like to look at snow, it's pretty. But I don't like it when I have to walk to work!
