The green fields of summer,
now covered in white.
the whistling music of,
prairie winds that tend to bite.
cottonwoods drop the used up limbs,
another winter is here in ole Wyomin.
A test of endurance in an unforgiving land,
northern breezes bring snow once again.
the mountains covered in a scattering of white.
glisten gold shimmers in the pale moonlight.
off in the distance coyotes howl
along with the hoot
of a great horned owl.
January sees the mercury plummets
to 40 below.
frozen solid everything wherever you go.
frostbit friends still greet you with a smile.
knowing life's going to be this way for quite a little while.
out on the river fog rises until
stopped by the artic inversion
at a four foot sill.
Now around March after the lion has left
and the frigid Canadian breezes subside just a bit.
starts the emergence of cooped up, cabin wary occupants.
just wanting to welcome the great warmth home.
soon as it's arrival, you turn around and then,
riding low over the plateaued land
here we go again
