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 !

 

 

CONSISTENCY ( 2019 ) 2019/12/22

Can  you hear winter winds break through the trees

With  frozen breath and chill,  an instant freeze ?

I hear the crackling ice,  it falls away

Reminds us  weather changes day by day,

It  sort of  vacillates and jumps about

Exposing  purpose,  choice,  free will  and doubt.

So let us now  our precious  chances take

Pray  God  we’ve no  more branches  left to break !

 

 

A PERFECT FIT ( 2019 ) 2019/12/10

I  waken to the  light  outside

It’s  pale and dull,  on the flat side

The  sun’s smile  has been hid away

By clouds above,  some sad and  grey.

Tomorrow  brings a better  chance

Of  love and joy  mixed with romance,

Our  lives are full of  ups and downs

With happy  smiles and  miles of frowns.

Let’s  spice it up,  just  for a bit

Perhaps,   we’ll  find  a perfect  fit !

 

 

 

 

MY CHOICE ( 2019 ) 2019/12/01

The  winter chill is  moving in

It’s  time to  take it  on the  chin

Unpack  your warmest   set  of clothes

Including  scarf,  gloves,  hat and hose.

Your  best  wool sweater  underneath

And  don’t forget the  holly  wreath

I  spy the  frost on  every bough

The  weather’s  truly  colder now.

Could   use   the warmth  that threatens all

As  per  our  latest  know- it- all

Somehow  I  think it is  a ruse

And  nothing  close to  what I ‘d choose !

 

 

 

 

EVERYTHING ENDS WITH A KISS ( 2019 ) 2019/11/27

My  life is strained and hard to bear

Too  many stories left to share

A   little up,   a  little down

A  happy smile,  a tiny frown.

Some  days are great and others sad

As  life is full of  good and bad

Tears  are there  in the midst  of bliss

Where  everything  ends with a kiss !

 

 

NO ALARM ( 2019 ) 2019/10/02

I  have never found myself depressed

Tis  like facing the world  half-dressed

I  have never understood the term

But  I  suppose I will have to learn.

A  foolish thought that I cannot shake

Oh days to come,  please give me a break

I  can’t  imagine time that is lost

As an exception,  what is the cost ?

I  pledge today I  shall do my best

To  laugh and smile  and pass every test

To keep my spirits  pleasant  and charmed

Present  no reason  to be alarmed!

 

 

 

 

GO WITH YOUR HEART ( 2019 ) 2019/10/01

Long time ago, I remember well

There was a tale the old timers tell

Of a man  who rode this way one day

Just  passing through not meaning to stay

When a shy young beauty he did see

A sweet  image for his fantasy.

Well the story goes, they got on great

While the rest of it was left to fate

The two young folks seemed to fall in love

Quite like the wish each was  dreaming of

Remember when love has a good start

Most times it pays to follow the heart !
