First Snowflake Fly

Such longing feelings before the first snowflake fly
I know so well how the long winter makes us all sigh
The long dark nights and the sound of a howling wind
A constant struggle getting up to face a daily grind
Gone the warm days and chirping little birds at play
Back are flocking pidgeons on chimney tops they stay
We long now for happy hours sitting around the table
All my hay is in the barn and horse is in the stable
Won't be long for Christmastime the family gathering
Griddle hot pancake with some maple syrup slathering
Fun how the children play and building forts of snow
All is cold but don't tell them what they don't know
Seasons come and seasons go and all will last awhile
Take each one with a little fun makes all worthwhile

Spoken in my 'native speak' with its short clipped twang,
takes some practice.....haha
