Paul challenged the kids to compose a poem to commemorate our Fall snow day. Here's what we all came up with:
The Winter That Came Too Soon
One Fall morning in a quiet house,
The snow crept in as quiet as a mouse.
It fell on the ground and on the fence.
And on the geraniums that had no defense.
The Fall colors weren't out.
Halloween had not come.
We were caught unawares.
Our Fall was now done.
Frost on a pumpkin,
And wet leaves to jump in.
We were not prepared for Winter so soon,
But maybe the snow will melt before noon.
