A Man Who Has Nothing In Particular To Recommend Him Discusses All Sorts of Subjects at Random as Though He Knew Everything

A Patch Of Old Snow


There’s a patch of old snow in a corner
That I should have guessed
Was a blow-away paper the rain
Had brought to rest.

It is speckled with grime as if
Small print overspread it,
The news of a day I’ve forgotten —
If I ever read it.

  1. Just when I thought we were finally in the clear, another winter storm in the Midwest dumps May snow all over the place. Really, REALLY tired of winter. Enough, already!! Especially since temps will probably be in the 90's in a week or so…

  2. You're killing me! Unfair to make me homesick for the place I escaped from long ago. A Pyrrhic victory, to be sure.

  3. And, Arkansas got snow, in May, first time on record since recording started in 1819. Dang this Gorbul Worming!
