Poetry Friday: Snow Day

Billy Collins, of course.

Snow Day

by Billy Collins

Today we woke up to a revolution of snow,
its white flag waving over everything,
the landscape vanished,
not a single mouse to punctuate the blankness,
and beyond these windows

(Read the rest here at the Poetry Foundation.)

Looks like today is a Billy Collins snow day kind of day.

I think he's great!

Yes! Oh Billy Collins, I love you so!

We are having a snowy evening here in Massachusetts. Tomorrow, were it not Saturday and Christmas vacation to boot, I am certain all the schools would be declaring a holiday.

It's all rain here, but we keep hoping...
