Easter Snow in Texas


I mowed the grass yesterday, a mere 24 hours ago
And I just looked out the window – to see a world of snow!
Easter weekend! In Texas! You know, TEXAS – cactus, cowboys and such?!
‘Spose I coulda been more surprised, but, I declare – not by much!

Birds didn’t mind, ‘cause there they sat, snackin’ on sunflower seed
I’s peekin’ through the kitchen window, jus’ enjoyin’ watchin’em feed
Cardinals both – a beautiful two – Mr. Cardinal and his Mrs.
An’ I was struck right quick by this lil tho’t: That all I saw . . . is His . . .

The Birds of Red, The Seeds of Black, The Snowflakes of pure White
If I should live to 100 -or more - I will always remember that sight
And remember, too – and so should you – that all that’s been, will be or is
Everything, Everyplace, Every life, Everyone – All of these . . . are His . . . .

Tom... I love your poetry. Can I borrow some of it sometime?

Great story, Buck, thanks. My wife's from Amarillo, so I can picture the scene very vividly!

I love that story of the little West Texas boy watching a "Northerner" fill up his gas tank at the station. Feeling uncomfortable under the little boy's stare, he says, "Does it snow here often?" Little boy says; "Snow? What's that?" The man replies; "You know, frozen rain." Little boy says; "Rain? What's that?"

Yes, all you saw is... His

Here in Central Texas, we VERY seldom experience snow . . . so, when, last year, we discovered huge, fluffy, fragile flakes floating from afar ...(sorry)... it was an absolutely awesome event. In April, yet - at Easter! True story - I was in the kitchen looking into our backyard, at the lawn I had just mowed the day before, now looking at two beautiful Cardinals - in the snow - on the birdbath; I must have been smiling, if not laughing, because, if birds can have a quizzical expression on their face, these two did. And, you know how it happens, . . . I just started thinkin' 'bout things -
