Streets covered in an illustrious white

Icicles adorn each and every sign

Traffic slows to a standstill

Isn’t nice for humans to be paused this time

And let nature take control

Of our actions, our breath

It’s always there, but in bitter weather

The ante is upped, vision is dimmed

And we stay home, afraid of the hospital bed

The snow falls fast, it falls slow

It falls in frightening flurries

Or in radiant twirls

Twinkling till the ground it hits

And becomes the mass we hate to deal with

The tracks we leave show the lives we lead

Some curve while others are straight

Regardless of the obstacles this is ours

This life we make

And it’s easier to appreciate

On this wintry day
