As the snow piles high and the announcer clears his throat, what will you wish for?

Before the dawn, as the snowflakes fall,
With a mug of hot coffee in my grip,
I wait to hear the announcerís call.
With the hot clay mug pressed to my lip,
Into a deep prayer I do slip.
Please Dear Lord donít let them say
That the bus for this street canít make the trip
And all four of my children have no school today.
Oh, they will be happy to stay home and play.
For they can go out and war in the snow
I managed to live through this just yesterday.
So to a day of learning I hope they do go.

As the sun rises, I feel a faint smile appear,
When the news of no school closings becomes very clear.

You painted a winter scene that is so real, humane, close to the little-big things of daily life that we all experience.

As a mother, I can imagine the scene as well as the thoughts, expressed with simplicity.
