Winter Charm

Many praise the people do sing,

Speaking  of summer, fall and spring.

Why do we neglect father winter’s charm

When crackling fires keep us warm?


When snowflakes cover most of  the trees

Their glistening  whites the senses frees.

White is the color that innocence means

A snowstorm dust and dirt does cleanse.


I wonder who created the Snow Bird name

For those who avoid some imagined strain

A  snow bird for me is an Audubon

That enjoys  the East  Coast’s  year round sun.



I like that in winter the days are short

More time to meditate that does afford.

When covered in a coat like a Grizzly bear

I enjoy some frosty snowman fair.


Holidays with candles and glitter

Delight even the smallest critter.

The anticipation from season to season

Gives our creativity added reason.

So today it is winter that I hail

While on horse sled thru its wonderland I sail.


When the icicles mimic rainbows when hit by the sun

We should savor every moment and have some fun.

Winter in the East

Should not be looked down on, in the least.
