Goodbye to Winter

Updated on March 10, 2017


The chilling winds heard throughout the night,

The burrowing creatures, all hidden from sight.

White carpets of snow spread so wide and far,

Iced walkways lining streets, covering each car.


The white owl sits pensively, woodlands to guard,

While snowflakes coat brown fences by the yard.

Black crows all call, announcing season's change,

Sunbeams dance on rooftops, reflections strange.


Melting snows, dripping ice cycles, signs of change in the air,

Flocks of wild birds, ducks and geese, search for waters, fair.

Gentle tan deer peer from dark covers, their senses so keen,

Spotted white dots evaporate, soon erasing the ground clean.



Goodnight old Man Winter, take your coat and your hat,

We'll all see you once again next year, now please scat!

We've endured your worst cold, having bundled together,

Now all are looking forward to the spring, warmer weather.

      I gave up winters when I moved to Florida. It gets plenty cold here during the winter months. I don't miss living in frigid weather at all.

      The thought of spring and summer is awesome. Winter should scat and allow the sun to shine. Enjoyed reading. Did you sketch the pictures? They are beautiful!

      winter brings its own delights--snowflakes, icicles, chilly breezes and all that; then it gets to be too much. Bring on the spring!

      You know, I came to Colorado Springs in late December for a three-month job contract. I expected some winter. Sure, we had some cold nights. But it was 70 degrees today and we've had lots of those. Well, if I was back home in northern Michigan, I'd be whistling a different tune. I still welcome the warm summer and the sunshine, wherever I experience it. Beautiful poem that is in the heart and mind of most people right now.
