A Wintry Season


Winter settling in with its cold blustery days,
Sometimes there's snow, other times freezing rain.
The sun shines brightly, once in a while,
Our typical day is shrouded in clouds.
The days go so slow,
Sometimes just not enough to do.
Finding a good book,
Helps avoid winter blues.
People go out, who likes to stay in?
You've got to do something once "cabin fever" begins.
Once out and about, slip sliding around,
You'll do just great, keeping your behind off the ground.
When you're back home safely,
Relaxing in your chair,
You'll stare out the window, wondering,
Why, did I want out there?
Once winter is over,
You'll take a nice ride,
Looking for spring flowers,
Sprouting on every hillside!
Till then just relax and enjoy your new book,
Throw a log on the fire, maybe cuddle with the cook.
As the days grow longer, they'll begin warming too,
Spring will arrive bringing new life into view.
