( For visually challenged reader, the image shows for tiny snow men like figures in different poses. All looking very cute!)
I do not know where these
four snow gnomes came from
They appeared overnight in my garden
Snow has been forecast,
yet not one flake has fallen
Did they drop fully formed from a cloud?
A cosmic April joke.
Cheeky, merry looking,
I half expect them to dance around my garden
Venturing out to touch them,
to confirm what my eyes see.
I could swear the first one laughed
As if my touch tickled
As I touched each in turn, I had a feeling
They were made of something alive
More than frozen water
Where could they have come from?
Will they melt, leaving a puddle on my lawn?
Somehow, I think not
There is magic in the air…
