The White Invasion.
It started with a single flake blowing in the wind,
It ended like an invasion with white stuff all around and covering all the ground.
It came upon us suddenly
No warning came at all, but suddenly the ground was white,
And invasion had arrived, and now we were under the rule of snow and no one could escape,
Everybody looked out of their windows, and looked at the thick new ground,
That had come upon them without a single sound.
The bushes disappeared and they made drifts with help of wind,
Some blew into ditches and water covered with ice,
And all the time the flakes did dwell upon the land around,
We walked through the snowy white and crunched upon the ice,
And all the kids did come to play upon the frozen hills
They got out their toboggans and motored down the hill, and as they over took their friends they let out a shrill.
The snow it was getting deeper no matter how hard they tried to clear.
To get to the road this time you would need a mighty long spear,
Each day it got much harder it seemed it was here to stay,
And the kids they built their snowmen mostly in the way.
Some people they found skis to use others skated down the river,
And little boys and girls out in snow for the first time just sat then started to shiver.
One night it started to get warmer and the snow melted all away,
And all the little children looked to the heavens for the white to come and say
Come down on us and invade the land we want to go out and play,
But as they looked and as they waited they would have to smile another day.
