The snow blanket


We had about 6 to 10 inches of snow in our city last night. The snow had covered everything and it was a beautiful sight this morning. The temperature remained mostly below freezing throughout the day giving no chance for the snow to melt. People played in the snow the whole day. What looked like a fine blanket in the morning now looks like a heap of dirt. 
==========================================

It looked like a blanket with tangled weaves,
The barren trees now filled with white flowers and leaves.
The snow had covered everything in sight,
Except for the sky and the sun shining bright. 

The blanket stayed even as the day grew,
People flocked to capture the mesmerizing view.
The mounds and the snowman soon dotted the trampled path,
As the kids hurled snowballs with blissful wrath. 

Only the remains of the blanket showed as the dusk set,
The broken snowman was now left to forget.
What was left of the blanket was still bright and white,
But pickled and trotted under the peoples might.
