No snow Sussex

In Yorkshire it was snowing
I heard online today
whereas down south in Sussex
it was simply dull and grey
In fact I can’t remember
the last time snow I saw
must have been some years ago
before a winter’s thaw

Hardly that surprising though
as here in warmer climes
coupled with the salty air
bodes ill for snowy times
Yet part of me was jealous
just a little for some snow
as it really is quite beautiful
when winter’s in full flow
