Easy Shoveling

The snow was light, fluffy
picked up and blown about
by the wind whipping down
from the north. As the sun
shone, the flying flakes
sparkled — flashing blues,
reds, silvers like sun
catchers and disco balls
hanging from the ceiling
at a New Year’s Eve party.
For that snow show he
forgave the seventeen
degree weather with a
zero wind chill factor
as he continued to push
the snow down the drive-
way to the tune “Crystal
Blue Persuasion”:
Look over yonder
What do you see?
The sun is a-risin’
Most definitely
A new day is comin’,

whoo-hoo,
People are changin’
Ain’t it beautiful,
whoo-hoo,
Crystal blue persuasion.

And as he shoveled, he
looked for the sun
and hoped for a new
day a comin’
whoo-hoo.
