A Poem for my Grandchildren


Pray for Snow

For my grandchildren in Jackson, Mississippi

From Oma! Belinda Glover Jones


January 11, 2021

Inspired by Izzy’s determined prayer for snow.


Pray for Snow


The weather presenter said there could be snow

I will pray for snow

The temperature is getting colder

I will pray for snow

The clouds are coming closer now

I will pray for snow

They are gray and getting darker

I will pray for snow


Another day and they’re still talking more about snow

Last night I prayed for snow

I can’t wait until it comes

Last night I prayed for snow

In school I drew pictures of a snowman

Last night I prayed for snow

I thought about Frozen, Elsa, Anna and Olaf

Last night I prayed for snow


Today’s the day the snow should come

I’m ready for the snow

My sisters and brother hope for it too

I’m ready for the snow

And then tonight outside it’s here

I’m ready for the snow

We jump and shout and even scream

I’m ready for the snow

Will it still be there in the morning

I’m ready for the snow


This happy day we go out and play

Thank God for sending snow

It’s not that much but we don’t care

Thank God for sending snow

We run outside with hats, boots and gloves

Thank God for sending snow

Make snowballs and have a fight with dad

Thank God for sending snow


We’re so happy, it’s so much fun

Thank God for sending snow

Mom records this special day, a happy, snowy day

Thank God for sending snow!

Inside we warm up with a mug of cocoa

Thank God for sending snow!
