His coming set off a ripple

THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Among the Rocks” by Robert Browning: gigantic, simple, bones, clear, bask, knows, knees, throes, ripple, gain, heap, earth

His coming set off a ripple
Of excitement to everyone
A gigantic snowman on earth
In the throes of it all that’s clear

The heap of snow up to my knees
His coming set off a ripple
Of simple truth and honesty
We should all bask in its glory

We have gained the largest snowman
Everyone knows of his coming
His coming set off a ripple
Of love and happiness for all

We could all feel it in our bones
Children throw snow balls at each one
And some making their own igloos
His coming set off a ripple*
