Winter Warmth

When winter wind’s howl
Chills me to the bone
With weather so fowl
It just makes me groan

I long for the days
Of summer’s sun bold
And try to find ways
To keep off the cold

With mittens and hat
And boots so heavy
I’m looking quite fat
Feel like a Chevy

With lumbering stride
And one last prayer
I step back inside
And peel off each layer

Slippers and settle
Turn on the T.V.
Turn on the kettle
To make me some tea

Grab a warm blanket
Pull it right over
Get snuggled in it
Call my dog, Rover

Rover licks my hand
I feel much better
Drinking my tea and
Cursing this weather


  1. Ha! Dog kisses and cursing are definitely therapeutic. Hope things warm up for you soon! :)

  2. I have to same experience here in the cold snowy mountains- 'cept I have Lucy the Cat! She keeps me warm!
