April Poem-a-Day — April 18, 2014

Friday, April 18th, 2014

For today’s prompt, write a weather poem.



Odd to find snow fallen overnight—

yesterday was sweating under a fan.

Sick of the white stuff just a month back,

this morning I welcomed it. Cool and clean,

crystalline feathers on greening grass.

And just for fun, a second weather one…


Cloudy With a Chance of Oobleck


I blame it all on Dr. Seuss,

my being fond of the abstruse.


Green Eggs and Ham began it all–

I’d eat none plain ’til I was tall.


Next of course was Mulberry Street–

it made me yawn at all I’d meet.


And I agree with Bartholomew’s king–

bring me weather with a zing.
