I see the frost upon the bough

I know the weather’s colder now

It seems the winter has appeared

Clad in its ever bright white gear!

The clock that’s on my kitchen wall

Marks time through winter, spring and fall

While summer days may melt away

To leave behind each yesterday

With warmth to hasten any claim

To love or joy or hope or fame !

The veil of white now settles down

It covers everything around

The falling flakes make not a sound

They simply float down to the ground.

There’s not a spot that isn’t white

The sky is filled with dazzling light.

The glistening snow shines ever bright

Resembling an ice cream delight !

Get out your mufflers, gloves and boots

I feel today may be a hoot

Our world is white and freezing too

There is much we have left to do.

I wish that we might build a fort

With slabs of snow the way we ought

The way we did so long ago

When winter brought us all that snow

But times have changed and so have we

Let us move on to victory !

 

 

WHEN SUNSHINE SMILES ( 2017 ) 2017/10/06

I’m not a fan of winter chill

A runny nose or feeling ill

Fact is I’d like to outlaw snow

In any place I choose to go.

But I don’t wish to be extreme

Or shatter others and their dream

Though I don’t ski, I know it’s fun

I have seen hundreds on a run.

Perhaps I’ll winter in the house

Snuggled up like a hearthside mouse

I pray that I’ll keep warm till spring

When sunshine smiles on everything !

The winter winds are a world away

That’s where I wish that they all would stay

There are some things I could live without

Including ice, slush and sauerkraut !

Now it doesn’t matter how I try

My ideas don’t stand a chance to fly

So old winter gets to rear its head

Bringing snow and cold to us instead,

How I wish I could escape the frost

And this wintertime would just get lost !

 

 

 

 

SPINNING OUT ( 2017 ) 2017/03/15

I’m peering through a veil of white

That is this early morning’s sight

Watching the snowflakes filter down

In pirouettes close to the ground

They flutter, dance and swirl about

Their silent beauty spinning out !

One cannot hear a single sound

Silence has fallen all around

The world rests in its wrap of white

That covers all we have in sight.

There blinks above no lonely star

Nor other remnant from afar

No steeple bell or chime is heard

None dare to utter any word.

Too many hours the snowflakes fall

In their great haste to cover all

The moon’s been hid by swirling snows

That’s all to see where e’er one goes !
