Snow day by prediction

A watery sun rises upon the wooded road with a biting chill in the air.

Fallen leaves are crushed en masse into sludge by feet of all shapes and sizes.

Windscreens are deiced while the radio blares a snow warning for tonight.

Wet socks and trousers are hung out to dry until the flurries come, their owners thrilled they will miss school.

The next day.

A watery sun shines upon the wooded road with a biting chill in the air.

Fallen leaves are crushed en masse into sludge by feet of all shapes and sizes.

Windscreens are deiced while the DJs talk about the snow that failed to materialise.

Little Johnny and Jenny still won’t get up for school.
