On a Day Like Today

On a Day Like Today
    by Amy Swanson 12/2008


On a day like today,
    I just want to scream.
This day is so cold!
    I'd much rather day-dream...

...of a small tropic island
     where sun always shines -
Yes!  That would do nicely!
      (though just in my mind)

On a hot sandy beach,
       where the water's deep blue;
relaxing and warm,
        with palm trees in my view...

and a drink in my hand,
     with that little umbrella!
My warm, leisured day
      would read like a novella...!

But I open my eyes -
      drat! this dull winter gray!
I prefer my day-dreams
      on a day like today!   :)

    Here here! I say Wonderland dreaming is the place to be with warm soft sand and swaying palm trees and pina coladas that come from a man who has nothing on but the drink in his hand...Hehehehe sorry, got carried away...love this one because snow is all over my grass right now! Yickes....LOL Love me
