WINTER IS HERE AT LAST
The mums are out of the ground,
The blossoms have largely browned…
And joints feeling older
Tell us winter’s around.
Animals are growing thick fur,
While people complain with a “brrrr!”
Folks from the tropics
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.
