The Dirigible Balloon
Poetry for Children

Snow Day

Winter’s wonder blankets the grass
Sparkling diamond frost sparkles on the surface.
Icicles shimmer as they hang from the house,
A calm falls over the trees
Hush of the birds deafening,
Excited screams of children heard in the distance,
Everything stops,
It’s a Snow Day.
