Please, Could We Have Some Snow?
I really donít have much Christmas spirit,
no Jingle Bell Rock, no ho ho;
a Christmas carol? I donít wanna hear it.
Itís boring without any snow.
If I wanted temps up in the sixties,
in December (if you can believe!)
I would live down south with all of those Dixies.
This no snow is getting me peeved.
In the dark of the night, if you hear a strange sound,
donít fret, now, donít be distressed;
Itíll just be me, prancing; dancing around,
doing a snow dance. (I hope weíll be blessed.)
I swear I remember a time in our town
when the crystalline air was cold; biting;
and lovely, fat snowflakes cascaded down,
subduing the holiday lighting.
I stand at the window and look at the sky,
a wish taking form in my brain;
would it to be too much, I ask with a sigh,
if we had snow, just some snow - not more rain.
Snow. We need snow, just a tad, just enough,
and cold weather - yes, that would be swell;
a little bit of the clean, fresh Ďwhite stuffí;
it would then be a joyous Noel!
