Day 47 (of 183) winter is coming – a poem

Day 47 (of 183) winter is coming – a poem

Today I read a Bill Peet story to our kindergarten students – the rhyming pattern he used inspired me for todays post, a reminder that “winter is coming”:
The wood chips are crunchier to step on

Slides are faster – whoosh and you’re gone

The whole darn playground is covered in frost

But everyone is playing, nobody is lost

Supervision needs toques and gloves

Many students are asking for inside jobs

The toy left outside was frozen hard

A couple of sweaters too in the school yard

This morning my car door was frozen closed

A rough morning, earlier I should’ve arose

A morning that was much better to walk in the sun 

Than the icy shadows of the school that are no fun

Before the last bell of the day

It was clear that a snowfall was on its way

But no worries or fears to be felt

Rain is following, it will all soon melt

But this is the start of the next bunch of weeks

Colder and rosier will all be our cheeks

On icy panes of glass our fingers are drumming

Because sooner and sooner, winter is coming!
