"Picnic in the Snow" by Lauren McBride

"Warmth" Watercolor on Paper
By J. Artemus Gordon
Picnic in the Snow
Lauren McBride

With hot chocolate steaming, 
we're dreaming aloud
under a bright blue sky
with a whipped cream cloud.

Poet’s Notes:  I have seen pictures of people sitting at cafe or picnic tables in the snow, seemingly oblivious to the cold, enjoying a hot drink or a meal. I am not in those pictures. I will never be in them. I would be shivering long before my hot chocolate stopped steaming. But I like the idea and so I wrote a poem.
