Ode to Cold 2016 and 2019

Ode to Cold 201673475043_528489464362501_3574659520493780992_n

Bright and sunny though it may be,

Winter’s here – it is clear to see.

The sun lies; it’s not warm in the least

Temperature is not fit for man or beast.

It threatens to snow

As the northern wind blows,

Oh no, here comes a blizzard

I’m COLD right down to the gizzard!

It is not very cold in 2019 so far!

Snow has yet to make a real mark.

Is this but the calm before the storm?

Before the cold arrives and takes its true form.

Or will it be a winter gentle and mild?

Similar to that of a newborn baby child.
