Blizzards Back East

I love this photo from the Library of Congress archives - Senate pages having a snowball fight in front of the Capitol Building. Wish our Senators and Representatives could get along as well as these boys seemed to do while on opposite sides.

Hope all of you caught in the blizzards are staying warm, drinking cocoa, and cuddling up with good books.

For Poetrrrry Frrrriday...Brrrr....What Snow Knows

 Watercolor by David Heyward
Tricia over at The Miss Rumphius Effect asked for snow poems for the Monday's Poetry Stretch. Here's my contribution: 

What Snow Knows 

Snow knows
the junco -
she's white-bellied and feather-light.

Snow knows
the black crow -
she's cold and unruffled in flight.

Snow knows
moonglow - 
 lips sealed, she ignores the night.

Poetry Friday this week is being hosted by Mary Ann over at Great Kids Books.  Head over there to see what other people have posted!
