Writer's Workshop - Oh, the Snow!

Last year at this time, there was a whole lot of snow! With around two feet of snow on the ground, it was hard to find important things like stairs, cars, etc. Here's my tribute poem to the snow.

Oh, the Snow!

Oh where, oh where has my garden gone?
Oh where, oh where could it be?
The bird bath is full, and the bushes are bare,
There's snow where the stairs used to be.

Oh where, oh where is my husband's car?
Oh where, oh where can it be?
We've run out of milk, and the chocolate is gone,
I'll have to walk to Speedy.

Oh why, oh why, is the snow falling down?
The dogs still have to go pee.
If I walk them now, they won't find the ground.
They'll squat in the snow and they'll freeze.

Oh where, oh where is the snow this year?
Oh where, oh where can it be?
There's only an inch of it, down on the ground.
Is that how this Christmas will be?

Mama’s Losin’ It


  1. Cute poem...looks like you did have a lot of snow. I love snow, but it is hard when it is so deep and cold.

  2. I would love just an inch here in South Carolina. I would still need to load up on milk and chocolate.

  3. What a cute poem! Makes me wish it would snow in my small town, if only an inch. :)

  4. I have decided to NOT question where the snow is (mind you I live in DC, so we aren't used to much anyway). BUT. It's still hitting 60 in December and that makes me very very frightened for what Jan and Feb will bring. I wouldn't be surprised if it snows in May 2012.

  5. I like your poem, and I like that you focused on the important things in life: milk and chocolate. Because, really, if we have those, we can face practically anything.

  6. THIS is so funny!!! I'll have the tune in my head all night now!

  7. Lovely homage to snow, I for one am not missing last year's deluge-our current frosting is plenty for me! Although I don't like to see any bare ground at Christmas time, so a few fresh inches before then would be just fine. I'm not fussy, or anything...

  8. I like your cute poem and am very glad we haven't any snow to speak of yet!

  9. This poem made me laugh! I have never...and I mean NEVER seen that much snow!! CRAZY!
