Winter Forests in Oklahoma (without snow)

The night turns to day, it is oh so cold;
The moon is bright and crisp, the sun honey gold;
The forests are brown and leafless, there seems to be no life;
The silent peace within it, no ruckus and no strife.

I love the winter forests, no longer wet and green;
Everything within it, hibernating;
Every once in a while, a small creature will stir;
Sending golden colors up, a flurry and a whir.

Note from Author: 
This is a tribute to my Oklahoma home which I sometimes miss very much!

    Hi Sena. A beautiful powerfully sad piece. No matter where we go we think of home. I was away for 27yrs but am home to stay now PS. My dribble on the farmer is almost true. he is an obnoxious man so I wrote this to put him in his place. Thanking you, Eamon

    I can picture this beautiful scenery, Sena!! Especially, the little creatures who step out in search of food. I can relate to missing an old home. I know that it can be painful sometimes. Love, Audrey
