Poem: “Hoping for Snow” by John Hay, Jr. [Vol. 3, #1]

“Hoping for Snow”
John Hay, Jr.


I’m waiting on the snow
A hope to fulfill;
I’ll prepare my skis,
Anticipate the thrill.


A Midwestern winter
With its bleak, dark days
Needs a good snow storm
To hearten the soul’s way.


Mere cold stiffens the heart
And drives us inside,
But warmth and four walls
Alone cannot abide.

I’m like a child praying
The snow will be deep
Enough for sledding,
And, tired from it, to sleep.
