A Minnesota Sonnet

Her hat and boots and scarf to brave the snow
And mittens bought at some old corner store
Adorn her form as she prepares to go
And struggles to, but pauses at the door
She breathes her last of cozy indoor air
And braces up her eyes and nose and mouth
Then ventures into winter's biting lair
Which weaker birds abandon for the south
What valiant humans here dare to remain
Where wretched trees do guard with naked claws
In lands where snow has long since banished rain
And weather gives the greatest grizzlies pause
But blizzards come and blizzards go anon
And spring around the corner brings the dawn.
