Snow

What a sad day
When snow lost its beauty
When the snow became a burden
When the brightness of the snow disappeared
When all that was left was a pile of melting grey sludge
When the thought of sledding no longer crossed my mind
When making snow angels became a silly endeavor
When I cursed the traffic as the snow fell
When the hope and excitement of having a snow day disappeared
When the mere mention of snow caused my eyes to roll
When I kept my head down as I shoveled the driveway
When I no longer turned my head up with my tongue out trying to catch a flake
What a sad day
