Praise For Winter Days

The snow reminds me a little of the sea; so many shades and textures!

With white-laced frills
And ice-glazed chills
And landscapes silver-starred
With buildings tucked
In clouds soft-shucked
Just like an old postcard

With mug ‘o hot
And hug from tot
Swaddled in winter clothes
Where all our skin
Is bundled in
Save eyes, pink cheeks and nose

With crackling log
And sparkling bog
And plup-blup-porridge-poem
With luxury
Of family
All happy to be home

With polished brooks
And bookish nooks
And vistas, clean and grand
We raise our praise
For winter days
And winter’s wonderland
