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 !

 

 

SUN AND SHADOWS ( 2019 ) 2019/04/17


The morning sun peeks through the blind

In hopes it will an outlet find

It zigzags swiftly cross the floor

To bounce off mirrors by the score

The shadows puddle and disperse

Erratic movements seem rehearsed.

How fast the sunlight streams clear through

In such great haste, so much to do

You must not wince in sunshine’s glare

Just shade your eyes and do take care !

I hear the rain,  its pouring down

The raindrops splashing all around

The smell of spring is, oh, so sweet

With more to come, our daily treat.

This earth is parched and overcome

The winter’s been its old hum-drum

The spring is here for its short stay

Let’s make the most of every day !

 

 

CARPET OF FALLEN BLOOMS ( 2018 ) 2018/05/12

Sweet cherry blossoms filled the air

They fluttered frantic with despair

And twirled above the barren ground

As all their blooms were settling down.

Their color faded in the mist

Where raindrops and warm breezes kissed

Their crumbled blossoms ruled the street

Where silken ashes cushioned feet !

 

 

THE BIRTH OF SPRING ( 2018 ) 2018/01/20

Oh Mother Earth where is your charm

That beauty we’re depending on

Falling snow and icicle balm

Creating scenes to wish upon.

While winter frost that melts in spring

Uncovers nature’s blossoming

So like a dream meandering

Will hear the forests gossiping !

 

I BELONG ( 2017 ) 2017/04/18

The sun is shining in the sky

The gentle breeze is passing by

The trees are laden with new green

There’s ne’er a cloud that can be seen.

The birds are busy housekeeping

Sometimes I hear the faint peeping

I ponder how much more we’ll wait

Until they gather at the gate

I love to hear their joyous song

It makes me feel that I belong !

 

 

GREAT JOY IN SIGHT ( 2017 ) 2017/02/26

It looks like spring may soon be here

Is this good time for us to cheer

Do you think we should wait a bit

Until we’re sure that this is it ?

Perhaps we’ll take another day

Ere we pack our woolens away

Another job for us to do,

Remember get some mothballs too.

I do so hate motheaten holes

In sweaters, scarves or worsted hose

At least there’s this great joy in sight

Goodbye to every frosty night !
