Writing 201: Drawer

Today is a day for odes, specifically in reference to drawers.  I’ve got a lovely set of drawers here, courtesy of Seymour, who procured for me an antique card catalogue for Christmas 2013.  Isn’t it pretty? 🙂

And because I love it so, I decided that it would be the perfect subject for my ode to drawers.  I failed to insert an apostrophe, but I am rather fond of this little piece, and I hope you enjoy it, too. 🙂

drawersOde to My Card Catalogue

I have a little chest,
A chest of many drawers,
And in that little chest
Were many worlds of lore,

Fascinating characters,
And far-off places, too –
In my little chest, I
Might have even found a zoo!

This chest is very special;
It was a gift, you see,
From a very special person
Who means the world to me.

Once it held another’s worlds,
Someone else’s loves,
Someone else’s hopes and dreams
And songs of things above.

But now ‘twill hold my treasures,
Every one unique,
And I hope that one day soon it
Will my children’s interest pique.

It’s the snowpocalypse!

That’s right, we’re finally getting our share of snow here in the Midwest, and boy, do I wish the forecast had been right the first time.  That forecast had most of the snow falling overnight, meaning I wouldn’t have to drive in it.  But the revised forecast had it starting this morning, and it came pretty much when they said it would.

It hasn’t let up since.

I’ve been documenting it on Instagram all day, and I’ll probably post another picture just before I leave.  Suffice it to say, we’ve had quite a bit of snow in a short amount of time, and it ain’t even close to over.  *sigh*
