Snow in the City. New Year in Birmingham. Snow, serenely falling; settling silently whereat it lands, as A soft white fitted carpet of the purest jewelled crystals. Net curtains twitch; as surprised eyes widen in wonder Before draped curtains close and settees and televisions beckon.

Snow in the City

New Year in Birmingham

slide2

Snow, serenely falling; settling silently whereat it lands, as

A soft white fitted carpet of the purest jewelled crystals.

Net curtains twitch; as surprised eyes widen in wonder

Before draped curtains close and settees and televisions beckon.

The temperature plummets as midnight beckons and passes

Whilst the bustling city sleeps; snuggled down in quilted beds

slide3

In the darkness, the snow shines a scene of luminescence

Its diamond crystals hardening, in the bitter sharp air of stillness

slide4

The day begins with the early shift setting out for their place of work

Engines running, defrosting windscreens, scraping off the frozen snow

Whilst on the pavement, in ambush, lurk secret patches of treacherous ice

Catching out the sleepy heedless pedestrians, racing for the office

Ambulances; doctors and nurses will be busy in casualty today!

slide5

Children, scarves flapping, hands in gloves, scrunch their way to school

With rosy cheeks and wide smiles, breath dancing from chattering lips

Talking of carrot faced snowmen, sledges, snowballs and snow fights

slide6

Cats stretch lazily, staying cosy indoors; dogs bound about with snow on their nose

As cheeky Sparrows squabble on the bird table waiting for breakfast to arrive

slide7

Shoppers venture forth for the daily essentials,

bread, milk and something for tea

slide8

And so it is, as the day progresses, trains and buses are running again!

The city changed just for one fall of snow
