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.
