MURRAY COUNTY POETRY

Poems by Murray Poets and Poems About Murray County
NO ESKIMO
by
John Homer Luffman
1910-1987


ALTHOUGH FROM LEADEN SKIES THE SNOW
FALLS AND THE ICY NORTH WINDS BLOW,
AND KIDS WITH SLEDS HAVE FUN, I GUESS,
TO ME IT'S JUST A MUSHY MESS.
THE TRAFFIC GOING AT A CRAWL
IF IT CAN EVEN MOVE AT ALL.
AND WATER PIPES THAT FREEZE AND BURST
ALL MAKE ME WISH FOR JUNE THE FIRST.
IT MAY BE WRONG FOR ME TO WISH
FOR SPRING BUT THIS IS NOT MY DISH.
AND 'THO I KNOW I SHOULDN'T GRIPE
I'M SIMPLY NOT THE ARCTIC TYPE!
