The snow falls in December,

The snow swirls like it’s in a blender,

The wind blows as December goose,

Good-bye winter we know you were here,

I’ll watch you go as flowers grow.

Alexis Cabell
214 Prairie Run

Rivers are rushing down the street.

Toads are hopping on the pavement.
I am sitting by the window.

Beep! Beep! Ducklings cross the street.
It is raining.

Nowhere to go.

Sit inside watching through the window.

The Traveling Minstrel

The traveling minstrel plays the song.

The traveling minstrel
doesn’t belong

He plays the song

everyone wants to hear.

And at the end they always cheer.

But who plays for him when he is sad?

None other than his own hand.

Set and make goals

Don’t give up when you try

Be brave and strong

Don’t hold back

The rain falls,

Pitter patter, pitter patter.
It doesn’t stop,

Pitter patter, pitter patter.

I am glad it doesn’t stop,

Pitter patter, pitter patter.

The rain feels cool on my skin,

I am thankful for the rain.
