Precious flower seeds are in the soil below a blanket of snow,
protected when the cold winds blow.
Farm-Town Floral supplies us with flowers from afar.
We have ice on our steps, even the tar.
Fresh bouquets have a way of spreading joy and good cheer.
Even though it’s January, April is near.
April showers bring May flowers;
Mayflowers bring Pilgrims and Thanksgiving.
Oh, I can hardly wait until spring.
Snow sculptures could make a snowy bouquet of flowers.
Spray paint them perfectly; it could take hours.
Just to see people smile at such beauty.
Hey, it’s part of our wintertime duty.
