The first snow storm of the season

The first snow storm of the season

During the years we saw many snow storms
Everywhere in the States, and in many forms
Some storms were gentle and manageable
Others were rude, dangerous, unimaginable

Some villages have seen floods when the rain
Followed the snow, causing destruction and pain
When the snow melts and rivers overflow
Many people lost their homes with nowhere to go.

From my window I could see the snow flakes
Falling gently and steadily, as the day breaks
The roofs changed their color to become white
Like a mother spreading out a sheet, what a sight!

First the wind blew slowly then it became stronger
The flakes changed size, as I watched them longer
They became smaller but increased their speed
In a short time creating white mountains indeed

The kids came out in the street with their sleds
Adding cheer and joy, their helmets on their heads
The sled hill nearby was all covered with snow
This is the direction I saw them all go.

Once in a while the wind was gusting with might
Disturbing the snow fall like a spark of fire at night
Slowly, slowly snow covered cars parked in the street
Snow plows arrived, moving snow and sleet
