Where is the Snow?

Where is the snow?
I want to know.
Demanded a wrapped up Carys
With nowhere to go.
Wearing big thick long socks,
And her woolliest hat,
Warm stripy mittens,
And a long pink scarf that
She had wrapped round her neck
And then tucked into her coat,
To keep her all warm,
But she couldn’t help but note
That it wasn’t that cold,
And there wasn’t any snow,
It’s not fair! Exclaimed Carys,

Doesn’t Jack Frost know
It’s his job to make frost,
And some snow and some ice,
A winter without it,
Is no fun, it’s not nice.
I’ve got a great sledge,
That can go really fast,
But it simply won’t work
On the green, snowless grass.
So please someone tell me,
Just when will it snow?
Because I’m bored and fed up
And I simply must know!

Where is the snow - a poem by Pooky

[This is in response to a request from Emma who’s daughter Carys is most upset about the lack of snow in the UK this year. If you’d like to request a poem, you can do so here]

    I would love to send the white stuff we are getting across the pond. I would end it Fed-Ex if I could;)


  2. No berries on next door’s holly tree in the autumn – always a sign of a mild winter (if not dry!)

      certainly not dry! We drove down to solstice park today (to meet my sister in law halfway for lunch) and we saw a LOT of water… I think my sister in law must have used her kayak rather than her car to reach us from the westcountry!


  3. This is very sweet and very visual xx

    As a snow virgin, I ask this question annually.

      We never used to get snow when i was growing up but we’ve had it every year for the last five years – until this year. I’m as gutted as the kids though I’m glad not to get stranded in strange cities with no train home I suppose!
