First Storm

First Storm

The 2nd day of the year, it snowed,

commencing late afternoon ’til early morn

It exhibited the beginnings of a major storm

until Monday which dawned sunny and warm

Snow steadily melting, on the roads,

sidewalks and driveways

Soon it was like magic, the snow

disappearing, leaving little or nothing visible

to prove its existence

Could this be a harbinger of the future,

surely a novel hypothesis, who’s to say…

— Ernie Larsen, Meriden
