Post 1458. Wednesday February 22
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
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.

This planted a huge grin on my face. Love the structure of the story, and the unexpected character in the end. Just yummy.ReplyDelete
I'm delighted! thank you so much.Delete
Nice one Keith. Still hoping for a snow day or two so I can have the day off work :-)ReplyDelete
Can't remember the last time I saw snow here. Perhaps you'll have more luck!Delete
That was so sweet!ReplyDelete
Thanks so muchDelete
It was fun to write too. Thanks KarenDelete
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!ReplyDelete
Snow is a rather rare sight here, and I can't remember the last time schools shut. I'm missing out!Delete
That was so sweet! Nothing better than time together with Dad!ReplyDelete
Nothing like a bit of Dad time! Cheers DaleDelete

Thank you so muchDelete
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.

Lovely, warmhearted tale, Keith. Here's to more snowdays!ReplyDelete
They are a nightmare foe some, heaven for others! I'm with the latter...Delete
That was fun, and made me wish I'd added my own snow poem to my blog!ReplyDelete
I'm sure it would have been a bit more grown up than mine!Delete
Sounds like Jonny had a fun day! Great poem "he" wrote, too :-)ReplyDelete
He's not bad at it! Don't know where he got he got his poetic streak from!Delete
I knew an unhappy snowman once.ReplyDelete
It depressed him that everything smelled of carrot.
Could be worse - what if it was sprouts?Delete
