Poetry Friday--Got Icicles?

Are you enjoying the snowy weather? Eaten any icicles lately?

For Poetry Friday, I give you Valerie Worth on "Icicles".

When they
Finally fall
And litter
The snow
With splinters
Of clear
Rock candy,

How sad
To discover
That rather
Than sugar
They only
Taste of
The roof.

From: Peacock and other poems by Valerie Worth, illustrated by Natalie Babbitt.
Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, 2002.
The Poetry Friday roundup is at Farm School
