Last Day, First Day

It was the last day of 2011,
A good time was going to be had.
There wasn't much snow, but just enough
Today will be a day to be glad.

The Brothers 3 would decide,
A play day they would give
To their children, of them, 5 would ride
An exciting day they would live.

There will be snow angels,
And rides behind the yellow sled,
Pulled at the end of the longest rope
On a tube, should they dread?

The laughter and screams were under the guidance
Of Uncles and Dads and true trust,
For not one returned crying but
Laughing and licking their snow-covered crust!

From top to the bottom.
A sliding hill promised more fun
For another turn, pairs of little legs
Crawl to the top for one more run.

Snow stuck everywhere, the noses, the cheeks,
The mittens and knees.
Nothing stopped the little ones from
Doing what they please.

Rest was needed, the sun never peeking through
Yet, it was a day of glory
For the children, for me,
Come along,~~~~for you, too.

Another year ended,
Another begun,
Look out the window, It snowed,
YES, more FUN~~~~~~

Thanks for stopping by and listening to me babble on and on.
Have a wonderful, fun-filled 2012, my friends and of course,

WOW, as always at Dar's Stuffings there is fun to be had, albeit sitting in a warm spot looking at kids in the snow. NOTHING is more fun to kids than snow, evidently even those who live with it from beginning to end of winter.
Love the pictures, love and appreciate the poem, you are one smart cookie!!! (Bill likes that!)

Love from down here. Hey Sherry says we are to be 24 tomorrow night, that is like you guys being 50 below. BUT we will warm up.(Thank goodness!)
Love you guys, seems you all started the year off right, with FUN!

No fun like 'snow' fun. I'll bet you had as much fun as they did capturing it all.

You have snow? Sandie

Great poetry, Dar! And loved the scenes of the snow with the kids all playing in it. Reminded me of simpler days when I was a child.

Paula said...

It has been a long time since anyone here played in the snow. Looks like you all had lots of fun.

Darcie said...

Wish we could have been there. Looks like the kids had a blast!

Love ya,
