A Day For A Book

The sun is on the ice-encrusted snow,

glistening on ice-covered trees;

I love to look from the inside out,

but I guess not everyone agrees.

 

School buses were running on time this morn -

not even a day off school;

The children dream of the skating rink

and think that would be so cool.

 

Birds are feeding early today;

the wind is picking up;

Grandma puts the kettle on,

and with her book, curls up.

 

Winter is a time to rest -

not worry about what's to do;

Other seasons, when we have to work,

we'll think of these days that are few.

 

The sun is on the ice-encrusted snow,

glistening on ice-covered trees;

If you're too old to skate, follow this Grandma's lead -

put the kettle on, if you please.
