The shades fly up
A sheet of white snow covers the ground
"No school" they cry
A day off has been found!
Snowballs, hot coco and mittens
Replace notebooks, pencils and pens
Pop quizzes and essays to be written
Traded for cold fingers, noses and chins
As the snow melts and cold toes thaw
Parents heave a sigh of relief
Kids polish homework to remove any flaw
For teachers, the respite was brief!
