When Winter Comes

by Diane Paley Davis

When winter comes knocking at my door
I shudder, and wish I were a bear,
So I could hibernate till spring.
I wish I could unplant my northern roots,
And migrate to the tropics,
But I've no wings to fly,
And these roots of mine are planted
Too deeply in this northern soil.
So I must stay and suffer through
Another season of frigidness,
And wonder why I'd wished the summer
Overwith so soon.

Tis true...when we are cold we wish for warmth and when we are warm we want to be cool....great read!
