Ark

All night the wind filled with snow howls against our walls.
What happens to the animals,
or people still outside
I do not know.

Small ship on a vast ocean our house sails alone through the gale.
Carries us fretting to the borders of morning,
the furnace and the radio
land ahoy.

Rhyming couplets for unmatched snowflakes

Snow and snow is all I know
It comes and stays and doesn’t go

It bundles me in peace and calm
The days so short the dark nights long

We play a bit and rest much more
Our weary bodies we restore

Snow and snow I’m glad to know
It’s not yet time for you to go
