An evening white with snow
the weather channel shows.
Hurry, hurry! Please prepare!
Water! Blankets! Bread!
The shelves in stores are bare
the streets are dark and dead
A flake of snow is falling
and friends and kin are calling.
Exciting! Dreadful! Scary!
The people are warm and wary.
Reports on television warn and show
excited children want to know.
Morning shows a flurry came and went without a flake to stick
perhaps we southern people act a little quick.
It’s been cold down south a lot lately… can’t say that I like it! We don’t do well with cold down here.
