Best Daver Austin Poems

+ Fav Poet



the freeze is over
gods given up hot cocoa
all nature’s things weep

the freeze has ended
sun struck branches are dripping
nut hunt thaw is on

the freeze has ended
temperature 33
icicles crying

the freeze has ended
and foolish thoughts turn to spring
winter gods chuckle

    Oops, missed this one, Daver! "Icicles crying" the ones at our neighbour's house looked very happy for a terribly long while. I'll be happy when winter is finally over, but Winter is being very tenacious. I went to see my specalist today...I'll write and tell you about the visit.:) Love you, Mikki

    Yes, we do get excited by this deception; happens every year and I'm a sucker every time. When will I learn that winter isn't gone till well into April. Makes me sad Dave, how do you do it? Love, Lizzie

    Daver, I love the way you describe the winter gods chuckling and the line about God giving up hot cocoa. At 33 degrees, Ma Nature surely has more snow in store for you. Now how can I find that "nut hunt"? I found one living in Ormond Beach. Funny poem! LOL Love, Carolyn
