Chill And Icy Fingers - Poem by Marilyn Lott

It was as though Mother Nature
Looked down on us and frowned
As long chill and icy fingers
Quickly gripped our little town

I awakened in the darkness
To a strange and eerie sound
As a billion icy crystals
Came drifting to the ground

For you see, throughout the night
A storm came quietly through
It seemed a little frightening
And it just might frighten you

Poor animals did not understand
Why their world had turned so cold
But it was truly fascinating
To watch this storm unfold

But nothing lasts forever
For this too will soon be gone
And I know this as I bundle up
The holidays won’t be too long

I will enjoy its sparkling beauty
And snap some amazing pictures
Wander around the new landscape
That is now a winter fixture!
