The  breaking dawn  moves  through the trees

Snowflakes  do fly on chilling  breeze

It’s  time to bundle up  today

And  find a place  that’s warm to stay.

The winter winds  are brash and buff

And  all  made of  God’s icy stuff

The  season has  turned rough and cold

As  each day  chances  to grow old.

We  all need keep our  feet quite dry

If  we are hoping  to get by

Each  day does  bare it’s  hoary breath

Take  care,  none dare to challenge death !

Here  I am bundled  up to the chin

While  the north wind  struggles to slip in

The  air is so cold,  it feels  like ice

Thank  God my boots  are so warm and nice.

I’m  not too fond  of old winter’s  chill

And  admit  it brings me  little thrill

I  pray we’ll  make it  straight  through to  spring

When  the world  around begins  to sing

And  all of life  does  rebirth anew

With  both  heart and soul  and  voices too

Let  us take  our  joy  where e’er  we may

And  live to  complain  another day !

 

 

COLD OUTSIDE ( 2019 ) 2019/11/06

The  fireplace  flickers as the fire glows

It  warms the  fingertips and  the toes

Too soon  the winter will  settle here

And stay  with us till the  end of year.

We’ll  learn to laugh though it turns quite chill

While there’s no chance it could change our will

For who  doesn’t  love the  old  fireside

When  winds  blow  hard and it’s  cold outside ?

 

 

THE SUMMER’S DONE ( 2019 ) 2019/10/25

I’m so sad  that the  summer’s done

It’s  leaves are falling one by one

The wind moves  slowly in the  breeze

While  sailing quiet  through the trees.

There  is a crispness in  the air

Relief  from heat  we’ve had to bear

Too  soon the winter  will  appear

To fill  the balance  of the  year.

Then  when the  dawn does  shine its light

That  emanates from  brilliant white

Reflected  there  in swirling  snow

You’ll  see the  season’s  icy show !

 

CHASE THE COLD ( 2019 ) 2019/10/06

The  days grow short,  the night  grows  cold

The  wind becomes  increasing  bold

There is  a chill pervades  the land

Before  the grasp of  winter’s  hand.

Tis  soon  ere Mister  Frost is here

Let’s  reccommend  a cup of  cheer

To  keep us all in spirits  gay

And  help us chase  the cold  away !

 

 

WHITE O’ER ALL ( 2019) 2019/03/03

The snow is falling all around

And multi-layered on the ground

The trees are wearing crowns of white

There’s ne’er a color in our sight.

It hasn’t stopped since yesterday

How long before this goes away

Outside the windows all you see

Is winterscape infinity.

The rooftops all seem burdened too

The eaves resemble an igloo

No matter where the eye may fall

The world outside is white o’er all !

 

 

WE DEPEND UPON ( 2019 ) 2019/02/12

Gone from all sight are the autumn leaves

We hear the wind, it attacks the eaves

The ice does crackle across each  lawn

A small sparrow chirps, move on, it’s dawn.

The clouds are laden in shadowed sky

Let’s pray this storm quickly passes by

It’s the time of year the branches break

While plants that sleep have too much at stake

Tis the moment all must carry on

Since we have spring to depend upon !
