Snow Must Go

The landlord did call
to say he would plow all
the snow away
sometime today.
I had to move my car
for he didn’t want to mar
when he plowed the snow.
He called to let me know.

I said, “Okay,
I’m on my way.”
I ran down the stairs,
thinking, “I’m glad he cares.”
I couldn’t believe my eyes,
for much to my surprise,
the lady who’s my neighbor,
was doing hard labor.

I looked at her,
for I wasn’t sure.
The call, did she not know?
She was shoveling all that snow!
I said, “What are you doing today?”
while she was shoveling the driveway.
She said,
without dread,

“I like to do this,
cuz I don’t want to miss,
any of the snow,
for it all needs to go,
off the driveway.”
I said, “Well, okay.”
I then took my car snow-brush,
to clean off my car in a rush.

When I went for a ride,
she shoveled my whole side,
right down to the pavement,
much to my amazement.
One thing is for sure,
I do want to thank her.
I bought some coffee in a can,
to give to her and her man.

That very morning,
while others were snoring.
she had said she did drink,
about three cups, I think,
So I wanted to say, “Thank you!”
And give you a gift of thanks too!
We hope you like your coffee canister,
Happy drinking to you and your mister.

Shepherds Heard

Praise be to our God
Give Him praise, honor, laud

For on this special, holy day
Way up high in the sky
Shepherds heard the angels say
Glory to God on high

God’s favor on man will rest
God gave His only Son
God gave us His best
Who is the Holy One

This is the Good News
So let us not be confused
