After snowblowing

Rounded mounds of
salt bruised snow
fill my yard
Clearing out
a winter storm
is not so hard

Used to be
after snow
I’d man the tools
Shovel and scoop
and treat my back
somewhat cruelly

Now I have
an electric tool
to blow the snow
The sculpted look
has left my yard
for a softer flow

When I come in
from a  snow cleanup
I’m still quite fresh
Electric tools
are the way to go
for old frail flesh.
