The Snow That Did Not Fall- a poem

Updated on March 6, 2013
The rain fell instead of snow predicted.

Little children wake up cheering

Little faces go on peering

Out the window, calmly waiting

For the white stuff to appear.

Their Daddy told them to listen

To the weather man,

Who predicted

A half foot or more today.

They were all so happy

School did not open today.

But what a disappointing

Sad surprise-

Mother saw the near tears

In their eyes.

That all was left outside

Was a puddle

From the rain,

Just a lot of "muddle".

A false report and

A lost day of wages;

Forcing the girls and boys

To either play video games

Or read books with lots of pages.

No one likes a rainy day

When the skies are just dark and gray.

Not one snowman was there to make,

Not one snow angel to form

Or a snow igloo to shape.

Some smart kids will just decide

The weatherman's a fake

On this wasted gloomy day.

      I used to look forward to snow days when I was in school up north. As an adult, I have often said I should be a weatherman. They don't know their asses from a hole in the ground and get paid big bucks for always being wrong!

      Ahhh - the job of a weatherman - no consequences for being wrong -

      it's the perfect job, isn't it?

      Sorry the kiddies were disappointed with the 'muddle' - don't be blaming the weatherman - it's not allowed! LOL..

      They can come over to MY place - there's about 5 feet of it outside..

      This a beautiful poem, I love reading new poems and this one is very good. We don't get snow in our city at all, but when I was living in the northeast we received snow often and I loved playing in it.

      What a wonderful story you told with your poem! I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.

      Your poem brought back memories of the snowy days I experienced as a child living in New Jersey. I live in the foothills of twin peaks in Southern California now. I've seen snow on the mountains this winter, but I don't remember the last time I saw snow fall.

      I have always loved snow. Unfortunately, we get a lot of rain I am usually disappointed in the winter. You just summarized perfectly my feelings when I was a child.

      Aw. Rain instead of snow.... I can't help but continue this in my mind with the children finding fun indoor games to play and it not being a wasted day....Thanks for a cute poem and a spark of imagination.

      "Just a lot of "muddle". Very cute. I can see their pouting lips stuck out in disappointment.
