It’s official! At 11:19 PM EST, winter arrived…brrrrr

Winter, in the morn, appears

Enticing everyone, with a flurry

Awakening the slumber of snowmen

Children, frolicking, on dunes of white

Snowball fights and mugs of hot chocolate

While we sit by the warmth of the fireplace

Longing for the first day of spring


Author’s Note: When this poem was written, winter arrived in the morning. This year, it arrives in the evening.  But I still think the last lines are true!  🙂
