Snow in Richmond
Let it snow! Let it snow
From a sky that has turned brown
Every inch, every roof, every corner
Have been covered with a white blanket
Of fluffy, mushy, layers of snow
Yet, the white blanket is so tidy, smooth like a swan
How does that miracle happen?
For hundreds and thousands of miles: one, even, white cover
Who could do that perfect show?
Who could turn everything into White in a few hours?
Who could organize such a big party of unity?
No Red, no Blue, no Brown
Yet, you look at the faces
All they care about
Is to escape the majestic white
To find a warm place and stay tight
They even call it: “bad weather”!
They have lost their true sight
That’s how man turns a bounty into a plight
Peace into war
Love into hatred and fight
Snow is a bounty that should be welcomed with delight
Children know that
For they are smart
For they have pure hearts
Children are the soul of this life
Without them, life would be boring and drought
Without them, in us, we would become
Empty, rough, hard and always ready to fight
