Here's a little poem I found by Mary Louise Allen, titled "First Snow":
Snow makes whiteness where it falls,
The bushes look like popcorn balls.
The places where I always play,
Look like somewhere else today.
I think this is what Felix was feeling as he looked out on our backyard.
I also found this lovely poetry project which uses Flickr to randomly collect snow photos. Click here to watch the images as you hear the poem. You can even replay the poem, asking it to search for new images. The first cycle of photos I got worked really well. The words and imagery in the poem are gorgeous. You can read the poem here. You can read about the project here.
Is there snow now where you live?
You can find more poetry at Random Noodling, this week's Poetry Friday host.
