I hate bloomin' Winter (With ye olde English translation!)

Taken from Ye olde English Dictionary

Bloomin' - sodden, to hate, or more to the point, bad swear words.

Mush- Face, as in, oy mate you got egg on yer mush.

Humbug- misery guts

Mojo- pride attraction as in the bees knees................

-

I hate bloomin' Winter

It's such a bloomin' pain

If it ain't bloomin snowing

It's chucking down with rain

-

My clothes are all soaking

My hair is a mess

I get drips down my t-shirt

That stick to my vest

-

I hate bloomin' winter

The wind and the slush

Kids throwing the snowballs

That go straight in your mush

-

My feet feel like concrete,

Packed ready to go

with ice in my nostrils

And frost down below!

-

I traipse home in my misery

Full of humbug and woe

I can't find my door keys

They got dropped in the snow

-

So I forage and fumble

Fingers frozen with frost

My nose started running

I'm a little girl lost

-

I snatch at my hankie

Which sticks to my face

I hate bloomin' winter

This house, and this place

-

My glamour has dwindled

My mojo's all gone

I feel bloomin' ninety

sorry, I don't mean to moan

-

At last I sit by the fireside

Hot chocolate, so yum

My toes feeling cosy

I can actually feel my bum!

-

I hate bloomin winter

with blizzards outside

But here in my sanctuary

I took back my pride

-

Hot baths, and clean undies

My hair in a twirl

I look in the miirror

And see just a girl

-

I hate bloomin winter

As you probably can see

Please bring back the summer

To restore little me

Hiya, thanks for saying that, I think it came from the heart my writing about winter! It started off last night when I was looking out of the window and said those fatal wordsI hate winter, and the next second I was scribbling it down on paper! lol Nell

It does seem it will be a longer one than usual this winter starting early but July & August are unbearably hot so I guess I just take the trade off, it will probably start blooming and being nice in Feb, and that's not so far away. Might have to borrow some of the old man's long johns tho till then.


Nell Rose profile image

Nell Rose 6 years ago from England Author

Hi, Pollyannalana, what a good idea! the long johns I mean! it is getting colder and colder here, I should have kept my mouth shut when I said it never gets very cold here! Snow again tomorrow, evidently it is the worst in England for over twenty five years... oh well, back to the thermal underwear! cheers Nell

What a fun and interesting poem, Nell. I learned some new words that I'll be using from now on! On that note, you definitely used them well throughout the poem. You made the words sound natural and part of our everyday vocabulary. Well done :)

We have snow all over Britain at this moment. I couldnĀ“t have found a better time to read your poem. I agree with every word.

My husband worked for 20yrs on a little island in the Atlantic Ocean. I forgot what Winter meant. I forgot you can see your own breath and O boy do I hate being in Britain in Winter.

Great poem. Voted up and funny.

Nell Rose 3 years ago from England Author
