The Snow Fairies

THE SNOW FAIRIES

The calendar said early spring

although the snow fairies said winter.

They danced and whirled and swirled

across the pavement

sashaying until all of a sudden,

they looked like they forgot their steps;

they scattered every which way

and the wind just laughed

 

I figure the snow fairies live with the wind

he pushes them:  sometimes angrily

but most of the time, gently.

He is partially responsible for ….

for what?

The brilliant little diamonds on their tiny crowns

these diamonds end up lying at the side of the road,

crashed and clunked and run over by unsuspecting motorists

 

Now it’s April Fool’s Day

and the weather joke continues

Spring is scared to come back

and take her rightful place

We pray she won’t be scared much longer

As the robins are already chirpingclouds their pleas to her
