Post 1458. Wednesday February 22

Friday Fictioneers


It snowed today!


Jonny jumped up and down with joy! It was snowing. And best of all, school was closed and Dad couldn’t get to work. Time for some fun! School said they had to do some homework, so when he finished playing outside, he sat by the fire and started writing.


It snowed today
Hip hip hooray
Slid down a hill
sat on a tray.

Built a snowman
fingers froze
Used a carrot
for his nose.

Threw a snowball
at my dad
The best-est time
I ever had.


‘I hope it snows again tomorrow’ Jonny said as he stared out of the window.

‘Me too’ said the snowman.

    1. Can't remember the last time I saw snow here. Perhaps you'll have more luck!

  3. A delightful poem of childhood that brought back the fun of days when school would be cancelled due to snowstorms, for us children at home it was a wonderful day of free adventure, for my mother I'm sure it wasn't quite so exciting with children underfoot and looking for things to do!

  5. Dear Keith,

    Cute story. I can remember some great snow days with my boys. Although the thought struck me that, like it or not, without school, Johnny wouldn't have been able to write a poem. I enjoyed this story.

  13. I knew an unhappy snowman once.
    It depressed him that everything smelled of carrot.
