Default Winter Thoughts

With the lousy weather most everyone is experiencing, I thought a repeat of these might be appropriate.

Winter Wish

When I hear the whistling winter wind,
My soul sets sail upon the Southern Seas,
To sense again the surging ocean tides
And feel once more the balmy, tropic breeze.

No cold, no snow shall keep me from my goal,
For I must seek the ship that my heart craves
With decks that glow in morning's golden sun.
A ship that glides so smoothly through the waves.

When dreary days make minutes seem too long,
And pleasant times are but a feeble wish,
I know that ship will find a shining shore
With crystal surf and darting rainbow fish.

There are so many pleasures that this earth provides
And memories that man must hold as dear,
But none surpass my days upon the waves,
When someone that I love is very near.

Ode To Rotten Weather

When the wintery winds turn cold,
My thoughts turn to the tropics.
Discussions of the ice and snow
Are just not pleasant topics.

Walking through the freezing gale
Is not my favorite choosing
I'd rather be upon a beach.
I'd find that more amusing.

The numbing cold affects my joints,
With running nose and wheezing.
If I can get to where it's warm,
I know I won't be sneezing.

Though some of you may fight and stay
To brave the Arctic season,
The prudent birds head for the south
Unless they've lost their reason.

It's clear just what I need to do,
I've made a resolution,
To breath once more the warm salt air.
A cruise is the solution.

And so I'll board a shining ship
And sail south through the ocean
To dine and dance and relish life
And embrace the soothing motion.

I hope you all can find a way
To flee the freezing weather,
For we must meet upon the deck
And celebrate together!

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.
