    I just saw you reading this poem on TV today and couldn’t believe how you encompassed my feelings entirely in your poem. I am often teased every time I get excited when the snow level drops in anticipation of possible snowfall covering the city…..for exactly the reasons you mentioned. How the world gets quiet; families gather; activities slow. I so thank you for sharing your work.

    I am asking for your permission to retype your poem in a different font, print it on non-fading paper; so I can frame it and hang it in my home. Of course your full name will be on it and the year 2104 after a copyright symbol.

    Then I found the wordpress website and created an account just so I could email you. All your poems are fabulous. Fabulous! Did I say fabulous yet? I am thrilled for your future and that publishes are seeing your keen talent.

    • Dear Liz Moore, Thank you very much for your note and kind comments about “I Love My City in Snow.” Yes, you’re welcome to retype it if you add my full name. I’d like to put in a word for purchasing the Sue C. Boynton poetry anthology, just published. The anthology includes my poem as well as many more fine poems from our community. Thanks again, and with warm regards, Andy
