Morning Celebration

Print Share
    How perfect to lie all snug in bed,
    With covers to my nose,
    Blankets warmly tucked about me
    Down to my pointed toes!
    Outside, the snow pours swiftly down
    And swirls against the pane.
    It slides across the frozen pond
    And shrouds our tree-lined lane.
    A sniff of toast tugs at my nose,
    Yet, tucked abed I stay
    Because the radio just announced,
    “All schools are closed today.”
