The Blizzard

The Blizzard

 

December came in its usual way

The weather was temperate, almost like May

 

The wind in the morning was calm, but a little unclear

By noon the changes began to appear

 

To the northwest black clouds darkened the sky

The winds picked-up and leaves flew by

 

Lights in the windows began to show

A light rain had changed to snow

 

The winds grew stronger and bent the boughs

A call was made to man the snowplows

 

Waves of snow blew all around

The city grew silent with hardly a sound

 

Windows iced over with hardly a view of the street

The snow splattered the window like concrete

 

Mothers and children gathered indoors

Little tots played with their toys on the floors

 

Men gathered their thoughts about the past

Wondering how long this weather could last

 

Cars flew flags, as the snow grew high

Unseen cars at intersections drove by

 

The streets grew narrow when the snowplows came

No two cars could pass on a lane

 

Winter in Minnesota might seem insane

But people love it never the same
