Winter, lovely Winter

for us, winter has been mild

in my little snow belt
we have but a few inches of snow
some ice crystals to brighten our days

always a joy to have the natives pass through

all fluffed up in their winter coats

most our days are cloudy
and when the sun shines upon us
joy rises naturally

sunsets light
dances upon some trees longer than others

spring cleaning in winter
a squirrel's underworld home

I hope this finds you all well
enjoying your days and nights
