Winter Is On It’s Way

Winter for sure is on it’s way,

Sunlight gets shorter every day.

All the trees are almost barren,

Now I can see farther across the hills.

Heavy knit sweaters folks are wearing,

Frost each morning sits on my windowsills.

Gathering wood for my old iron stove, 

Hanging bird feeders in a nearby grove.

Filling my cup with hot spiced tea,

I’ll call on an old friend to share it with me.

November

November’s the month that you get a chance,

To spend time outside a little while longer.

Warm sunny days pop up now and then,

But the wind is cooler and a little bit stronger.

 

Leaf’s dangling on branches here and their,

Plenty of warning before they are totally bare.

Darkness comes early, light no longer yours,

Better get busy, finish up those outdoor chores.

 

Repair all the the cracks in the window panes,

Clean out the twigs and leaves in your drains.

Stack up plenty of logs in a nearby covered space

You’ll have nightly warmth coming from your fireplace.

 

November gives you the time to put your mind at ease,

The Almanac gives warning, this winter a deep freeze.

Sitting by the fire with your coffee, you have not a care,

You were the smart one, you knew how to well prepare.
