mourning the passing of winter

goodbye to the crisp air

the long nights

the warmth that must come from within

so long snuggly flannel sheets

well worn flannel pajamas

so long so long

gone is the icy scent of snow

gone the sweet scent of fire

off in the distance.

I already miss you

twinkling lights and

I miss the song of winter

the coming on of spring

and summer

the coming on of warm


despite your long days

your hot and humid days

I am thankful to see you

arriving again

like nothing happened

what a year can bring you

where a year can take you

how a year will make you

mourn the passing of winter
