(Or, A Foot In The Snow)


ďThe Eskimos had fifty-two names for snow,

Since it was so important to them;

There ought to be as many,

For love.Ē


Margaret Atwood


It started fallin yesterday

And I really didnít mind

It was lovely to behold

The light and fluffy kind


So, I did a little shovelin

Cleared the walk and door

When I looked out, at Noon

Still snowin, more and more


This was definitely a job, for two

I hounded my wife to shovel, too

By dinner time, we were still at it

But this snowstorm, wasnít through


I looked out our window, at Midnight

And that snow, it was still a comin down

But I canít remember where I left my wife

So I raced out into the yard, lookin all around


Iíve managed to locate Frosty the Pumpkin

And I soon dug out our rat terrier, Little Jack

But Iíve only been able to find my wifeís boot

But Iím confident, before long, sheíll be back


She probably snuck off to the mall,

And forgot to wear her snow shoes;

But I really hope she shows up soon,

Iím gettin The Hungry Shovelin Blues.


©Winter 2010, Mr. Ed

Beware of stray boots, they have a tendency to adhere to the backside when you least expect it. Spare the pumpkin spoil the wife as they say. Patrick

Oh, that's one thing I don't miss: shoveling! Again and again and again. Daddy was a firm believer in shoveling WITH the snow. During the Blizzard of '78, he changed his mind. LOL! Glad he did, especially since it was ME who was the shovel-er. Well done, stay warm and safe, 'hear?!?

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

a kool write Ed
That is one thing I don't miss about the northeast
"shoveling snow"
We are still here in the beautiful state of Georgia
For another few day before returning south,
we are presently under a state of "emergency"
in the Atlanta Metropolis area,
Yesterday they had 1 to 2 inches of snow
I nice sheet of whiteness to decor their
Manicured lawns.... but the roads are icy and dangerous
they (the Municipal surrounding Government) possess no plows, no salt
spreaders, nor any inclination on how to cope......
I rather be snow bound in a cabin in the middle of nowhere
under 2 feet of snow, and I would feel more secured......
for sure
Peace be with you

She's probably making out with the snowman Ed, check if his nose is glowing. This is a fun write, especially having mean woman shovelling, I know it's a lie, but just the same a good try.
