A kind of Wonder

Because it’s become a bad-country song-cliche
You’ve become a little wary.
Because it at times seems like a cop out to hard times
You hesitate to make it public.

But you can’t lose that sense of wonder.

Yes, you grew up in a higher place.
A little morning snow was commonplace
in November,
December,
January,
etc.

And it would be easy to make fun
and act smart and experienced.

But when you pull up the blinds for
that little person
and he points to that piddly mid-state dusting
and says “Snooowww. Wooow.”

You can’t lose that sense of wonder.
It’s all things amazing and fun
to wake up to snow,
no matter where you are
and how old you get.
