Ode to Cold 2016
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.
