The Snowman


There is a snowman in my yard

that wasn't there before.

You see the boy would not be quiet

no matter what I said.

He promised faithfully that he would

not run screaming down the stairs again.

But not more than minutes past

before his mind would design

some other way of making noise.

"Go outside," I would say, first pleadingly

and then more directively.

One cap gun set off too many

and then he had no choice.

And now there is a snowman in my yard,

and I am sipping tea in peace.
