A Canadian Winter



A down day I'm having They are certainly rare No real reason Not very happy I declare Just one of those day The approach of the cold Could it be winter Could be I suppose Each year round this time I'm afflicted by this The on come of winter The warmth I will miss I'm aware of the seasons Three are okay The fourth old man winter Wish would just go away Sure must be speaking For most Canucks Maybe a mild winter We'll have with some luck Who am I kidding It's in Canada I reside Mild pertains to cheddar Not the temperature outside © Jack Ellison 2013 Got dumped on last night... about 4 or 5 inches!!!

    LOL Not for a few (many) years but yes! I certainly remember loving winter as a kid... now... not so much!!! Normally this snow will disappear before the real onslaught of winter... it's a bit early! Love and warm hugs xoxoxox

    Snow! Oh yes, how I love the snow...on the grass only not on the streets! It can be very illuminating and fantastic thing that snow! I assume you don't like winter my friend! Cold doesn't bother me, you just have to bundle up...but the heat of the summer...I can't handle that too much, you can't walk around naked (at least not outside anyway, I have been known to walk around naked in my house every once in a rare time) You have delighted me by the splendor of this incredible poem! Great Work!!

    It was our version of "shock and awe"!!! Cold, I can deal with... the snow can cause so many problem! Yes I agree, it's beautiful for a day or so and then it can disappear! LOL

    Chin up, Jack, it's a bit early for the Winter Blues - although with that much snow in one dump last night I don't really blame you! Hugs xoxoxoxoxoxox

    Already below freezing here, too. Another canadian clipper came our way. I already miss the warm weather.... Like it was yesterday. Oh! It was!...LOL...On the War of the Roses Dragon has finally learned that Winning doesn't mean that you've won! No one has talked to him since yesterday... He's looking repentant... But we know it won't last for long... But kinder and gentler is definately in his future... I'll make sure everyone is forgiven by nightfall...
