“Morning Celebration,” Friend, Feb. 1992, 22

Morning Celebration

How perfect to lie all snug in bed,

With covers to my nose,

Blankets warmly tucked about me

Down to my pointed toes!

Outside, the snow pours swiftly down

And swirls against the pane.

It slides across the frozen pond

And shrouds our tree-lined lane.

A sniff of toast tugs at my nose,

Yet, tucked abed I stay

Because the radio just announced,

“All schools are closed today.”
