WINTER CALLS

By 8th November 2017 December 9th, 2019 No Comments

A chilling wind and threatening sky

Both make the daylight hours fly

Swirling leaves that dance and play

Upon the grass this Autumn day

A nippy day for gloves and hat

Just say “Hello” don’t stop to chat

Then throw your ball and let your dog

Enjoy his play before the fog

Begins to get too thick to see

Then chase him home in time for tea

How I hate the Autumn’s chill

With sun-less days so dark and still

Around the corner winter waits

To paint its frost on garden gates

A warning that we all will know

To be prepared for winter’s snow

But it’s not all just doom and gloom

As we seek out a cosy room

To sit and view the crisp white scene

Criss-crossed by tracks where folk have been

A-top the hill, just by the hedge

To push the kids upon their sledge

The memory of their sheer delight

Will cheer me up each winter’s night
