Pg. 185: What?

*

Um… what? This was the view outside the window this morning. Where am I again?

Snow Day by Billy Collins
*
Today we woke up to a revolution of snow,
its white flag waving over everything,
the landscape vanished,
not a single mouse to punctuate the blankness,
and beyond these window
s
*

the government buildings smothered,
schools and libraries buried, the post office lost
under the noiseless drift,
the paths of trains softly blocked,
the world fallen under this falling.
