Snow days like this were such a treat
The flakes dropped down out of the sky
Each one unique and light
The snow stuck to the frozen ground
And piled up in height

So breakfast was a hurried meal
The children couldn’t wait
With all the snow piled up outside
The sledding would be great

Snow days like this were such a treat
Yes, every kid’s delight
For they would close the schools for sure
Just look at that great sight!

But school days are not like they were
Before the virus came
Now everyone can learn from home
All days were much the same

The school bus doesn’t pick them up
The schoolhouse was shut down
Most people tried to stay inside
It was a quiet town

The teaching could be done remote
So snow days were no more
It wasn’t like it used to be
Not like in years before

The kids could not believe the news
That school would still go on
They never thought they’d see the day
When snow days would be gone

They all sat down dejectedly
And you could see them pout
Then all at once the smiles came
The power had gone out!
