Snow, snow and … less snow (in sunny Devon!)

December 10, 2010

While Scotland and northern counties in the UK still struggle through snow, unusually deep and unusually early for the winter season, we only had around an inch. And it only lasted a day or two – just long enough for me to snap Robin in the snow as he visited to demand his daily ham fat.

But it was the snowman who attracted the muse … hope you enjoy these seasonal poems!

DEAR SNOWMAN

As white as a cloth on a table,
As white as a cloud in the sky,
As white as the paper I write on,
As white as dots on a die,
As white as the frame round the window,
Where I sit and look out feeling blue,
Last night, while I slept, you melted,
And nothing is white without you.


EPITAPH

Here lies a carrot
And some lumps of coal
The remains of Snowman
Rest his soul

    Your lovely tribute has inspired my deepest sympathy, Celia.

      Thank you, Mary. I’m sure my snowman will be back as soon as it snows again! 🙂
