Winter’s Playfulness

Quiet autumn afternoon croons

Turning crystal white much too soon

 

Tree’s colorful, festive heart breaks

Collecting endless white snowflakes

 

Guarded weather forecast tonight

Predicting quickest shot of white

 

Overnight, all signals splinter

Transforming autumn into winter

 

Morning arrives, sharing delight

Witnessing a land, white and bright

 

Massive neighborhood tree now frowns

Missing some branches, crashing down

 

Silence broken, machines at play

Blowing heavy, wet snow away

 

Others working as busy bees

Shoveling sidewalk paths, now free

 

Laughter punctuates winter’s air

Watching children, playing in pairs

 

City avenues filling with cars

Sliding and crashing, near and far

 

Winter’s sense of humor snowballs

Spoiling autumn’s last curtain call

 

But wait, a few days down the road

Coming back, fall’s last episode

 

Days numbered, autumn’s final turn

Waiting for winter’s cold return
