We had quite a winter a few years back, when life revolved around anticipating whether or not there would be school.
Back then I was figuring out what my blog was going to be, and decided to post an occasional poem. Fortunately for you all, I soon switched to only book-related posts, but I saved a couple poems.
We got the word last night that schools would be closed (and the library too!) because a big storm was on its way. Well the storm wasn’t as big as they thought it would be, but that’s okay. So in the spirit of a winter that is hanging on, despite spring being only a couple weeks away, perhaps these little rhymes will remind you of your own school and snow days!
The temp outside is zero,
The kids are home some more,
I think they went to school last week,
I need stuff at the store.
We’ve had lots of family bonding,
A tad too much by rule,
I’m glad the plows worked through the night,
Tomorrow, I think…school!
Snow Day Alert
When I was once a girl in school,
We heard a different way,
A loud horn told our sleepy town,
There’d be no school that day.
Now I get an email,
And then an auto-call,
It’s posted on the website too,
The message goes to all.
And when I get that message,
My kids know what comes next.
I don’t go door-to-door upstairs.
I tell them with a text!
Thanks for visiting – come back soon!
