Morning Celebration

    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.”
