I was greeted by the curious cattle as I trod past their lot. Frigid temperatures filled the air and spread over the landscape.
Off in the far distance on a rise in our land stood a deer. Her profile captivated my attention. What a treat to see her against the backdrop of snow. By the time I reached my mailbox, she bounded off across the road and on to our neighbor’s field.
As I returned to the farmhouse a little song rang in my head. I wrote a few words that I think are cheerful as we enter the wintry season filled with cold, snow, drifts, arctic air, etc.
These lyrics I go with a tune I used to sing to my young children. The tune belongs to the song, “Hello, My Baby.”
How I remember
Summertime’s radiant glow;
Temp’ratures warm and fun,
Working out in the sun.
Now it’s a story of winter’s glory
Blanketing earth with snow.
Weather, here we go!
