It was from around five years ago, but in winter (not April) - but I'm from the UK It's sort of a jumbling of memories - the first couple of verses are from being older and the rest is from when I was really young.

I loved being small because more times than not the snow was "Knee-Deep" (hence the name of the poem).

Yea, I remember when that was the way it was! Yu should have seen the blizzard in April, everybody started freaking out, except for us kids who had already started a snowball fight I loved your poem, I though that the mid winter was a metaphor but poems are meant to be thought of in different ways according to the readers life. I really enjoyed it!

Snow is hilarious. Just last year at my school we had to go home early (around three times!!) because of the amount of snow. Also stopped our exams for a whole week (AMEN)

has this one finished? I get a bit confused with the time/date differences. Ah well if not. About 6 years ago I was homeless this kinda sums up how I was feeling. Sorry for bringing anyone down xx

Home

Its a miracle
Its a Joke
I'm Free
Your all mine now

I'll love you forever
Don't leave me
Four years to find you
One day to own you
You look good in red
I don't want you broken
Were together now.

Why am I still alone, with walls to call my own.

If you are looking for community input on this, I mentioned before I love Zulie's and Boltz's. To that, I'll add Starguru's wonderful memories.

That's great!

If others wouldn't mind chiming in on their favorite three entries, I would very much appreciate it!
