Weatherman says that
chances of a white Christmas
are slim to none.
I always have mixed emotions
about the snow.
Falling snow on Christmas Eve
is the very best of all times.
But I worry for those who travel
on slippery roads
to be with loved ones.
So, I am secretly relieved
when there is no snow.
Still , the romantic in me
wants snowing on Xmas morning.
I want to see cardinalsí red flitting
among the waves of sparkling white drifts.
The sight of trees flocked top to bottom
warms my heart.
The fence posts all lined up
wearing their little caps of white
always make me smile.
I  maybe just dreaming
of a white Christmas.
But dreams can come true,
even if chances are slim to none.

I have vivid recollections of what you describe so articulately well here, Miss Lori. Nothing was uglier than dragging the manure spreader out into a beautiful layer of snow and engaging the paddles! Rest assured, Lori Rhoden, that nothing in your poetry reminded me of that process! In fact, I don't 'snow' what made me recall such a disparaging sight!

I best be getting along. I think I'll hitch a ride over to 'ku kountry. Splendid poetry, my dear!
