The Snow Is Back

Winter is back, with her coat of white

So are the holidays, to my delight

Families together gathered 'round the table

At Thanksgiving or when they are able

 

The season of giving is also here

The strain of the checkbook gives some folks fear

But those less fortunate should be on your mind

We should give if we can and be most kind

 

I live where people are out in the cold

From the quite young to the very old

That's why it is so important to give right away

Those folks live literally from day to day.

 

Treat everyday like it's a holiday!

    Fine work Christina - just a shame I'm allergic to the cold.

        MMMMMMMMM.... lovely warm Thanksgiving poem for us to gobble up. This week I'm going to get the turkey and all the dinner "fixings" - enough for a large family (with leftovers) and give to the social services folks in town to find a home for it all........

          HOLA CHRISTINA ~ WOW SNOW ALREADY ! In Essex (UK) we don't expect any until end of January (very unseasonal !). I'm pleased it has put you into Holiday Mode for Thanksgiving & Christmas. I have been looking @ Coastal Erosion so have been off line. Every Blessing ~ Abrazos y Besos ~ BRIAN (Panda sends his Love !) @@@@@@@ Loved your POEM ~ B !

            Beautiful imagery starting with the first line. I love the sentiment in this, that we need to give. Especially during a season that teaches us holidays are about getting gifts. You have a beautiful heart

              Christina,

              Our coat of snow is here...
              Ready to be worn...
              Along with a blanket...
              Covering all the green!
              We’re seeing the first snow of the year! It’s really beautiful...as beautiful as your poem!

              ~Laura~
