We had a snow day last week.
in South Texas
and of course, it did not
actually snow at all.
So we did, too… stopped everything.
Then, for two days, the sun came out
and it seemed winter was over.
But Tuesday, a bitter cold blew back in.
This time, I saw tiny flakes fall.
Just a whisper, then dissolving into nothing.
Like they were never there at all.
You, who loved snow, would have laughed
at our excuse for winter.
But I will never get to tell you.
And I am afraid spring will
be a long time coming.
