An Ode to Winter.

I step out my door and what do I see?
A million white flakes winking at me.
The cars are all covered with a dusting of snow
And my heart plummetts from my chest to my toes.

“Curse you!” says I to the grey winter sky,
“Begone, and avast!” and this my reply:
“Winter is here!” The snow proudly proclaims.
“We herald the coming of Winter’s chill fame.

“Summer is gone, the season is ours:
There is no recourse, nor reason, nor power.
So bust out your sweaters, your mittens, and that old soup pot.
No use twisting your knickers in a knot–

Winter is here, and he’s here to stay!
Its a glorious season! A glorious day!”
And what could I say to that?
“Aw crap, what a load of horseshit.”

    Indeed. Montreal got its first snow today and that’s exactly what I’ve been thinking. Bleh.

  2. hahaha!
    i love winter. but we don’t really get it here. perhaps if i lived somewhere it got really cold, i’d hate it, too. but here, it’s still in the high 70s and all i can think is… WHEN’S THE COLD GONNA GET HERE!

  3. Puss: Yeah, my sentiments exactly. Obviously.

    Jazz: At least Montreal is cool. Bristol, CT is uber-lame. Now, its uber-lame and snowy.

    Dawn: Aw shucks! You’re gonna give me a complex. Narcissim, anyone?

    Martha: Are you insane? Don’t knock the nice weather! If you move to N. Carolina, you’ll rue those words. Lol.

    Big Momma; Ha! Winter loves your hate. He basks in your words and drinks your tears of frustrated ire. Maybe if we profess undying love, winter’ll go away…

    Kara: Um, that’s SNOW. You know, ice crystals that form WAY up in the sky and fall upon our heads in light, fluffy, cold flakes that looks a bit like stars? Rain is water droplets. Rain is wet. Snow is cold and dry-ish. Does it snow in Portland at all? Um. Speaking of which, how could you possibly be jealous of my rain?! You live in frickin PORTLAND, the land of perpetual wet, where it rains 364 and 1/2 days a year! I think fear of the midwest is getting to you….drink more vino!

  4. I don’t are what any of you commies say, winter is worthless without snow (coming from someone who should see it more often, but just about never does.)

  5. Adorable!!! But, I have to agree with woozie, take back the cold and grey if there is to be no snow. The smell of it elicits and excitement within that no words can describe. Okay, no words from me, you might do it some justice thouhg.

  7. woozie; lol. I’m a SOCIALIST, not a communist.

    Pool: aw, thanks! The smell of snow is nice enough I suppose…sort of a crisp freshness, right? Ennervating, bracing, andrenaline-rush kinda smell? Yeah…but I absolutely DETEST being cold, and you cant have snow without cold, so…I’m afraid I have a hard time thinking of good things to say about snow.
