The grizzled stinging icy rain

Assails my frosted window pane

The splaying of its frozen bits

In rhythmic sound each window hits.

The ledges are piled high with snow

One cannot force the sash to go

The world outside is grim and bleak

It mocks the look of Bakers Street.

Oh Sherlock please, don’t be upset

We have no mystery as yet

The weather seems to be a curse

Of course it could be so much worse

Let’s wait it out, comfy inside

Thank God that we have nought to hide !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

NEVER ENDING COLD ( 2017 ) 2017/01/19

I’ve trudged among the trees where winter breezes blow

Shuffled through the streets piled high with new fallen snow

Lingered in the shelter of tall buildings nearby

Silent as particles of snowflakes gently fly.

There is certain quiet that I appreciate

Appearing only after the hour has grown late

And so it is in winter we place dreams on hold

All’s impossible in this never ending cold !

Now here it is, tis come at last

That cold and windy winter’s  blast

With ice and snow and crippling sleet

For who can manage on his feet ?

The chill invades most everywhere

How will the birds take to the air,

The squirrels nestled in their dens

Will shiver much before this ends.

While all God’s creatures in the yard

Must find the going rather hard

Dear Lord above, please hear our plea

And save us from calamity !

The winter winds of change creep round the bend

As late fall exits after summer’s end

The icy gray grip of frosty morning

Is the master of each daily dawning.

I hear the cold sounds rasp upon my ear

Increasing as the year end grows quite near,

Oh to join that moving mass exodus

And escape this winter’s freeze and excess !

Oh magic wand, where have you gone

We need your help to carry on

The weatherman decrees more snow

Where did your special powers go ?

How long is it we’ll have to wait

For spring to enter our front gate,

Oh springtime sprite you’re overdue

Do you need help to make it through ?

Dear snowfairy, it’s time to fly

We beg of you, please say goodbye !

 

THE SNOW FAIRY ( 2015 ) 2015/02/16

I’d like to think that there might be

A creature known as snow fairy

With streaming silver hair aglow

That blows and flows mid winter snow

And sails the clouds above the wind

Where storms and flurries do begin !

While frost that edges all around

And permeates most of the ground

Can have no mercy till the spring

When warming winds do comfort bring !

I must admit that I’ve not seen

Some cold and heartless icy queen

Clad in her cloak of ermine hue

It is no sight I’m psyched to view !

 

A WINTER SONG ( 2015 ) 2015/02/14

Oh little ones do you hear this song

If you know the words, please sing along

Greetings to you on this brand new day

How I wish that we could meet and play !

Do you think the morning sun will show

Or shall we have one more day of snow ?

Perhaps you might add an extra prayer

Please save us from this chill winter air !

We’ll be so grateful to greet the sun

And free at last as we gaily run,

We can stretch our legs and laugh out loud

And savor the joy of springtime’s cloud

If we are lucky the sun will shine

To leave the cold and our cares behind !
