Running from the Law: Snow Day

Snow Day

Snow is falling to the ground
Piling up in enormous mounds
School is cancelled for the day
Children run outside to play
 Snowballs are thrown in the air
No one has a single care
Laughing, playing, chilly fun
Because the day’s a snowy one
Snowmen are stacked round and high
Their top hats almost skim the sky
To make them solid they must pat
Then finish off with mittens and hat
 If the weather gets too cold
All the children will be told
To come inside, get warm and eat
Hot chocolate with marshmallow treats
Once the kids are warm and done
They put on their gear for more snowy fun
Some of them will run around
While other kids lay on the ground
A snow angel each will make
With lovely wings, for goodness sake
They spread their arms and up they fly
Into the flurries in the sky
Almost over is the day
The children start to walk away
As snow falls, so does the sun
Time to go in, the day is done

Stay safe and warm out there!
