Winter’s Dance

White winter blanket covering the ground;

Swirling and whirling as it comes down;

Shifting and drifting to winter’s dance;

Children all watching as in a trance.

***

Traffic all creeping as on they go;

Slipping and sliding through winter’s snow.

Streets now of ice and yards of white;

Nothing is stirring all through the night.

***

Highways appearing like junk yards now;

Nothing is moving but one lonely plow.

Cars in ditches not able to steer;

It’ll be days before it’s all clear.

***

Travelers stranded and motels are full;

Not many places left for them to go.

Shelters now open from the freezing cold;

Strangers are gathering, both young and old.

***

Emergency crews everywhere can be found;

Exhausted and cold; making their rounds.

All through the night, this vigil they keep;

Watching over our town, so we can sleep.

***

Come morning our world is a canvas of white;

Sculptured by nature all through the night.

Our prayer is that no one fell in harm’s way;

That all may thank God for this brand new day.

***
