Snowball


"There's a snowball in my closet,
Been saving it since March.
Someday I'll throw it far,
But today's too cold and dark.

There's a snowball in my closet,
I'm saving it for June.
I have to go to school now,
But I'll have time to play soon."


"I'd like to go have fun outside
And enjoy nature's sights,
But I'm just much too busy,
Gotta work from dawn 'til night.

Relaxation's nice and pleasant
But it will have to wait
Because there are more important things
I have to do today."


Someday in the near future
You'll be absolutely free
To do the things you've always wanted --
You have my guarantee.

But I'm afraid, dear brother
That when that big day comes
You'll open up your closet
And find your snowball's
..................................................Gone.

Thanks, all.

Dreamer, you are impossible. And I wouldn't go around drinking snow unless there was a serious lack of water. You never know what it could have been through.

The moral lesson is strong

the Misneh says that on learning Torah
אל תאמר לכשאפנה אשנה שמא לא תפנה

We used to tell a story when we were kids, about a smiler scenerio, of a guy saveing the snow for the summer, and the finding it gone much to his dismay.

Take the snowball in your hand
Aim and throw and see it land
A shame to waste its shape and feel
Don't just dream dreams, make them real

Yep agreed, throw it when you get that first chance.
1 Be careful where it's thrown!
2 If you miss, don't worry winter comes around again.
3 Always use the best snow available!
