It’s snowing in Minneapolis today… what do they say?
April showers, May snows? Is that the way the song goes? SMH
Winter won’t go easy into the dying of her season
She wants to wind through our hair so that some part of us can fly
She wants us to scrunch our faces up at her cold
She likes when we try to hide from her elements
But most of all she wants us to know that she is necessary too
And that not looking forward to her, cracks her icy crust and it hurts
She’s jealous of the sun, how we crave its warmth
But she is relieved to know, we wouldn’t rejoice in the heat of the summer
If we didn’t know first, the harshness of her wintery chill.
