Winter has come at last
Its cold tentacles reach out
Making the air cold to touch
Blows its breath to cold winds
Make land barren with snow
And where ice flings out afterwards
Laying rivers to frozen roads
Raging into a large winter storm.
Winter is not among us
No snow to tell wintry tales
Only mild cold days lie around
With darken gray moody skies
Seasons seem to disappear
Not knowing which
One we are on next
Mother Nature seems to throw
The seasons out whack
I wish you were here
To see snow falling out there.
Your favorite time of year
For your coat was made for it.
I would take you out
You would eat snow
Enjoying a fresh treat;
Then run rocket dog
Up and down and around
On large lawn across the street.
Oh, how I will miss our winter together.
You and me outside
Whether blizzard, ice or cold
We would waddle through snow together.
Winter comes in force
Gathering his army of clouds
To rain snow upon the ground
Bright green grass begins to fade
Turns to brown and yellow
Confine under white accumulating snow
Only to be reborn when Spring comes
To free grass from white, icy cold prison
Trudge through knee deep snow on starry night;
Where new snow glistens without single foot print ahead.
Through the woods I plod onward.
Smoke curls around a house
Beckons me home to warm against the cold.
I shake the coldness of snow and leave it at the door.
Gather a book and curl up close to blazing fireplace.
With dog sleeping on my feet.
Happy to be home in my cabin in the woods.
Winter, I loath to see you continue bringing forth your snow.
I am tired of the cold and endless bleak days.
You have made life dark and sluggish.
I can’t seem to work through your season.
Your snowflakes are beautiful, but to drive when it’s blizzard;
Causes me not to want to step outdoors.
Snowy landscape of course is nice but only for a few days I will admire.
Could you try not to make it so cold (as in negative ten degrees)?
I am fine with fifteen degrees but less it can not be;
For who wants to be out in that kind weather
But, I must because I have dog.
Could you think on it for next year please?
I am glad you did make Christmas Eve have some snow.
For it has always been special when it happens.
I am done with your cold, freezing and bleak days.
Can please allow Spring to come forth now?
Snow sprays my face
I trudge forward slowly
Snow is too deep
I try to keep pace
Dog is bounding quickly
Until she stops to sniff
Grabs a bite of snow
She plunges forward like nothing
As I lumber along
Trying to catch up to her
On a snowy, cold day.
