Ode to Snow

Oh, precious snow
You were once in a far away land
In a dream I couldn't quite grasp
My eyes grew big in innocent wonder when I thought of you
And I longed to meet you and touch your icy fingers
But now that you've kissed my cheeks and turned them red
Now that you've rested upon my lashes
Now that you've enveloped me in your blanket of ice
I despise you
The sight of you makes my heart tremble with anger
You are the bane of my existence
You are the gray cloud on a summer day
You are the snow in my parade
