Winter Blues

Whirling, swirling, all around, here comes the winter snow;

January's bitterness will chill our weary bones.

Despite the heartless ice and frost that makes us all feel sick,

A cozy fire or cup of tea will fix us in a lick.

Source

Thank God, for the ground hog who gives us happy news,

Spring is just around the bend to end our winter blues.

So when the snow storms come and all is covered white,

Cheer up, because it won't belong, we'll see the goose in flight.

Source

To catch the smell of boiling sap drifting through the air,

Makes winter seem shorter to us that really care;

Or spot the first arrival of a robin in the snow ,

Tells us Mother Nature's really not that slow.

Source

Like a huge revolving door spinning round and round,

Seasons change continuously with their ups and downs.

We shouldn't wish our lives away like we seem to do,

For next year is on it's way with more winter blues.

Thank you. We have a big storm moving in where I live. I hope it's not as bad as they say it will be.

the winter blues they can sometimes get us down, but I so enjoy this time of year sitting by the lake and watching the geese and ducks swimming around without a care in the world and then along come the ice fishermen gathering on the ice. Beautiful poem

God Bless

Good Job Diana, Many think I am crazy but I would love to live in the snow (if only for awhile?) so I enjoy reading about a true icy snowy winter's day and you took me there. Rated up!

So glad you liked it. The snow is very pretty when we don't have to travel in it.
