As the sun slowly rose this morning
I saw a blanket of untouched white
And knew there was something I wanted to do
Though I should probably wait until night.

Still I put on my warmest jacket and gloves
Found my big socks and one boot -
While looking for the other I knew
This was going to be be a hoot.

What would the neighbors say when they saw
This old kid, walking quite slow
Getting ready to take a bitter cold dive
To make angels in the snow.

Never did hear what they thought of it
But I'm sure it gave them a start
I just hope they laughed for a bit
For it sure did lighten my heart.

Oh, only if it snowed in my part of California...this only reminds me of its beauty!!!

 Open arms can be the most fragile in the world...

BSC-
I like this.  
I'm still a kid at play ...
flying kites, rollerskating,
making mudpies in the rain,
and puddle-jumping.

When the kid in me
comes out to play
I care not what
the neighbors say.

BSC, sounds like my grandpa! I wish he still had enough strength to get out and do that. This is a very fun and light hearted poem!  -SEA

LOL this was great and uplifting! I did just that a few weeks ago! I bet my neighbors thought I was nuts, but hey, who cares!
I had to throw adulthood out the window for a few moments, and I had fun doing it! Makes ya smile. And so does this poem!

When you can't make up your mind
Which way is right for you,
Stop and softly ask yourself,
What Would Jesus Do?

Wonderful poem about a fun type of thing to do, I bet you warmed your neighbors hearts with those snow angels, I know it would have warmed mine seeing them.
