I used this photo my dad took of the snow for my poster today so photo credits go to him.
Canadians love to complain about winter
It gets under our skin like a great big splinter,
“Is it cold enough for ya?” Canadians say
As common a phrase, as “Have a Nice Day!”
Winters in Canada are long and cold
They wear us down and make us feel old,
Trudging through great big drifts of snow
We forget that there is green grass below,
We look forward to spring like a lovesick teen
So eager to see things budding and green,
To feel the warmth and enjoy the sun
To ditch the coats and have some fun,
We Canadians like to think we’re tough
But even we have had enough,
We’re so sick of never ending snowCome on Winter, it’s time to go!
This April I am participating in the A-Z Challenge
and the NaPoWroMo Challenge NaPoWriMo where I will write a post and a poem for each letter of the alphabet each day in April except for Sundays.
