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 !

 

 

ICE CREAM DELIGHT ( 2018 ) 2018/03/08

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 !

 

 

NOUGHT TO HIDE ( 2017 ) 2017/02/13

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 !

 

 

CALAMITY ( 2016 ) 2016/12/18

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 !
