Winter (2)
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

By Quentin Clingerman
Other Poems by Quentin Clingerman



Winter is the least desirable of the year especially now I am older

Cold and aging do not at all go together

Snow belongs on picture post cards and in photos only

Ice is for cubes in the freezer part of the refrigerator

or in ones ice tea or other soft drink or water

Do I give the right picture, a clear understanding?

I do not like winter "Sam I Am" I do not like winter at all

There is nothing edible about winter so tasting it will not do

Winter is for the young, for skiing fans, and snoman makers

Florida, especially the Keys, is where oldsters like me belong

Or the sunny southwest in the lowlands and along the coast

Hmmmm San Diego seems the place to go, or Phoenix

For winter

For oldsters

Like me!


Winter (c)2013 Quentin Clingerman
