Winter Be Gone

Written by: Annalise Brigham

Winter, when you first arrived,you were such a treat! How You teased our hearts; you never missed a beat! The children reveled in your promise of snow And at first sign of flurries little faces came aglow Come nights, they were tucked in bed warm and tight While you squarely laid your carpet of pure white You hung icicles for garlands as you trimmed the trees As snowmen and angels guarded the streets While I’m grateful for each visit this time of year Boredom's now settled in; there’s no more room here How I yearn for bright sunshine; to walk bare feet in the house! O, winter, be gone! Spring fever is roused. ~*~ 01/23/13
