Winter Weary

Relentless and endless rain pours down
From the Heavens, dark and grey.
Sad and alone, I sit by the phone
Restlessly longing for sunny day.

Relentless and endless, dreary rain
Covering the country side.
I sit by the phone, sad and alone
Hating the rain I cannot abide.

Relentless and endless, so it seems,
The January days go by.
Sad and alone, I sit by the phone
And shiver with winds that won't die.

Relentless and endless, no respite,
Each day boring as the last.
I sit by the phone, sad and alone
Until cold winter days have all passed.

    what a great way to show us winter weary with this terrific rhyme, my friend. Don't despair. Spring is right around the corner. Look how fast thanksgiving and Xmas passed us by.
