A short summary of the season of winter... from a summer lovers perspective.

On the day after Thanksgiving,

there was dare not a pout

Since all the children ran around

while the snowflakes fell about.


On the roofs, on the sidewalk

all over they fell.

Into the lake and by the house’s gutters

where the icycles would soon dwell.


As the months went by and the snow fell hard,

the animals were hibernating in the barnyard.

Sitting by the fire with a novel and a cup of tea,

thinking about the sun and grass I became antsy.


I looked at old home videos of the green outdoor world,

watching the trees shake from the breeze as the chimes twirled.

How that bright summer sun in the morning arose,

as in the winter, the cold air bit your nose.


And so I said to the trees, the pine, oak and maple,

We’ll just have to wait, just a little longer… to April.
