Weekend Poetry Assignment



On Saturday February 4 2017, I woke up early to go to a dive meet. It way snowing, so it took quite a bit of time to get there. I was Diving on the 3 meter, so I started with open practice. I got 1st in my event, and got home at 3:00.

I shoveled snow for a portion of the day, and watched some TV and did some homework.

On Sunday, I woke up early at 6:00am, to go to day 2 of the dive meet. When we got there I went to open practice to practice all of my dives. About half way through the competition, was my event, and I got 2nd place out of 10 people.

Coming home, I read a bit, and had a bath. After cleaning the kitchen, my family and I ate a dinner of appetizers, while watching the Super bowl.

It was snowing, so I went outside to walk my dog. We brought him around the block, and stopped to go sledding down a big hill near our house.


The snow was as light as a feather

Flakes sprinkled on my nose

Although some may dislike this weather

I will always love a frozen rose


I slip my cozy snow-pants on

The heat inside is like a desert

I step outside and all the heat is gone

So cold, I pile on another sweatshirt.


The slush squashes under my feet

Soft sparkly sprinkles of snow stain the  hill

I take out my sled, all nice and neat

Racing down the crisp snowy hill


When our world gets blessed with fresh fallen snow

My gloves will scream yes to go out, that I know
