Mark Holmberg poetry

RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – We all know CBS 6 reporter Mark Holmberg has a creative streak. Now he wants to hear from you. Click here to email Mark an original piece of snow-inspired poetry and he’ll choose one to read on TV.

To get your creative juices flowing, Mark submitted the first poem:

Four to eight, eight to 10.

We’re going to die all over again.

Close the schools, state-of-emergency calls,

Before the very first snowflake falls.

It’s so easy to forget in this threat of snow,

That we overcooked the panic just two weeks ago.

Forget enjoying this brief gift of the season,

50 degrees by Friday, to inject some reason.

So cram the stores, strip the shelves.

It’s okay, we just can’t help ourselves.

This is from Ken WIlson:

 To grocery store we’re drawn

Time to get your mittens on

Close the schools

Drive like fools

Just another Richmond Snow-mageddon!

From Betty.

AT WORK, AND AT SCHOOL
WE ALL LOOK OUT THE WINDOW TRYING TO PLAY IT COOL
WAS THE WEATHER FORECAST RIGHT OR DID WE GET FOOLED
WAITING ON THE SNOW
COUNTING DOWN THE TIME OF WHEN IT WILL BLOW
TIME TO GET INTO THE RUSH OF TRAFFIC FLOW
SOME TO HOME AND SOME TO THE STORE YOU KNOW
FOR ALL THOSE ESSENTIALS BREAD , MILK AND SNACKS
ITS GOOD TO BE OFF AND BE WELL STACKED
IT WILL BE PLENTY OF TV WATCHING TO DO
ENJOY THE SNOW THROW A SNOWBALL OR TWO.

And check out this nifty one from 10-year-old Pax!

On pencils and key chains you won’t find my name
But when you’re snowed in tomorrow I’ll be to blame
Hope your pantry is loaded with water and snacks
I’m coming to see you and my name is Pax….

From Carmel:

We are getting ourselves ready, for a major storm that’s on its way,
Eyes are locked on channel 6; WTVR is what your TV needs to play.

We’ve been given much forewarning to prepare for what’s in store,
Each Meteorologist has such insight, they love their jobs – it’s not a chore.

They are searching all the ways to give us what will help us out the most,
Zach’s the CHIEF in this department who studies all from coast to coast.

He is blessed to have the pleasure of working with what we’d call a wondrous group,
Mike G, Mike S. and Carrie, along with Zach, they’re like a “troop!”

They will give the weather to us, and then they always share this word,
“If you can do this, stay at home, don’t want you hurt”, is often heard.

We are given all the closings; all the changes and delays,
WTVR your channels perfect in yes the most sufficient ways.

Our community wants to thank you, for the dedicated work done in “your place”,
I pray that God above will bless you and bring sweet smiles to each ones face.

Thank you for the dedicated people that serve with such kind, sweet hearts and spirits at WTVR.
