CAUGHT HER DRIFT!

CAUGHT HER DRIFT!

“It’s so BEAUTIFUL…” she yelled,

On a break from scraping window ice…

Her car buried in a snow drift

But thought the crystal trees looked nice.

She or somebody wished out loud’

I really wasn’t that near…

That she had a camera

To take a picture “out here.”

She tried to kneel on the hood

To reach the other side of the car…

Her leg kept slipping off,

From that angle she couldn’t reach far.

We neighbors helped her dig

Out her vehicle from…

The drift it nosed into,

Our artistically minded chum!

FURTHER ADVENTURES OF…

FURTHER ADVENTURES OF…

Black-ice Bobby then

Went out for a drive in the glen…

Clobbered a drift,

Went over the cliff

And was never heard from again!

GRAVEYARD SHIFT

GRAVEYARD SHIFT

 

I remember doing third shift,

Seeing daylight at the end was a lift…

On the weary ride home

I felt so alone

But going home then was a gift.

Seeing the first signs of life

After the previous night…

Or the frozen haze

On wintry days,

If the car avoided snow drifts!

I got used to working all night,

But the Missus had her own fight to fight…

Had to switch to days

As her sickness displayed

Itself for months of bad nights.

My employers were not very happy

With this shift-switching chappy…

My late sacrifice

Brought love to her eyes,

Her recovery took a long time there, Cappy!

MORE WINTER FUN

MORE WINTER FUN! 🙂

From warm inside to wintery freeze
Similar to a Nordic sauna…
Transitioning in this weather will
Refresh both flora and fauna!

Tobogganing headfirst down a hill
Can be such a surprise…
When breaking through a further snowdrift,
Sprayed with powdered snow in the eyes.

I’m glad, at the time, that the snow drift was free
Of barbed wire, poles and such…
If they were hidden inside that drift,
I wouldn’t have enjoyed it much.

An Adirondack college winter camp sauna
We used on alternate nights…
The co-ed course for which we paid
Didn’t guarantee mixed gender rights!
