WINTER IS HERE AT LAST

WINTER IS HERE AT LAST

 

The mums are out of the ground,

The blossoms have largely browned…

Temperatures colder

And joints feeling older

Tell us winter’s around.

Animals are growing thick fur,

While people complain with a “brrrr!”

Folks from the tropics

Focus optics

Remembering how warm they were.

Ladies take out winter things,

Put away previous Springs…

The summer stock

Is put out for hock,

Or kept safe for warm weather flings.

While drivers look after the tires,

Wood stoves are prepped for hot fires…

To keep homes warm

In the midst of any storm,

The kind of thing New England inspires.

REDHEADS ARE ANIMALS!

REDHEADS ARE ANIMALS!

Squirreling away for a rainy day,

They’ll take nuts over you…

Redheads prefer the active way

Or at least we are told they do.

Ears pick up at the mention of treats

Scattered around the yard…

Gotta remember where they’ve buried the nuts,

Winters can be very hard.

I’d love a cute redhead to help keep me warm

But I’ll first have to ask my wife….

But a redheaded squirrel is not what I need,

No way, no how, not on your life!
