Vertical puddle, or: Snow

My first rispetto

T'wards snow in Jerusalem I feel cold,
Slip-sloshing through this dirty wet hassle;
I'd much prefer to stay locked in my hold,
Where I'm king of my dry, humble castle

Israelites tend to find snow exciting,
But my fingers feel stiff while I'm writing.
Such commotion would a Russian befuddle ~
What's so great 'bout a vertical puddle? 

Jerusalem had its first snowfall in six years the night before last, and I am excited ๐Ÿ™„

  1. Your excitement shows in those lines ๐Ÿ˜€
    And your daughter? Didn’t she like it?

    I would be very excited if it snowed around me where i stay, but it only rains – and creates muddy puddles ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. The problem was that the snow fell in the evening when it was already dark and we were getting ready for bed ~ by the time morning rolled around, it was already raining and the snow had become slush. ๐Ÿคข

    1. Yes, I agree.

      I rather enjoyed snow in New Jersey when I lived in the USA ~ that was enough to actually have fun in. The problem with snow here in Jerusalem is that it is gone not long after it arrives, and because Jerusalem has rainy winters, it’s usually soggy not long after it lands on the ground. At night, I would have called it snow – by morning time, it was slush.
