Laboring Like the Snow

Snow day.  Bring out the sleds!

Like Snow

by Wendell Berry

Suppose we did our work
like the snow, quietly, quietly,
leaving nothing out.

I appreciate Wendell Berry’s sentiment, but snow makes me want to play!  I am not the only one.  Snow is rare in Seattle, and even a light covering of white on the sloping lawn around Green Lake was enough for sledding fun.

    It looks like wonderful fun. When we had our Christmas Eve snow a few years ago, everyone, child and adult alike, turned out to play. I built a snowman, with blooming flowers in his hat! Granted, he was only about 18″ tall, but a snowman he was.
