Lights in the Window (TBT)

“A lot of people like snow. I find it to be an unnecessary freezing of water.”
Carl Reiner

Lights in the Window

Colourful aren’t they?
Pretty too, wouldn’t you say?
Feeling kind of comfortable, are you?
Well, just follow the colorful hue
Step into our humble house
We may even have a mouse
Sit down, take a load off
A cup of hot
We’ll bring you on the dot

Snow Mummies (TBT)

Posted in Throwback Thursday

“A lot of people like snow. I find it to be an unnecessary freezing of water.”
Carl Reiner

Snow Mummies

Uncovered from the snow
In the dark night they glow
Small black stones for eyes
Only afraid of the sunrise
Melting their worst enemy
Cold weather the only remedy
Sitting pretty for now
Until the earth they will bow

Down the Hill (TBT)

“A lot of people like snow. I find it to be an unnecessary freezing of water.”

Down the Hill

When ever there is snow on the ground
And a small mountain or a molehill found
The kids will arrive in flocks
Dragging their sleighs to the top
“Mommy, mommy, look at me!
Look how fast I am going!
Oops, look, there’s a tree!”

<Crash, bang, boing>

“Mommy, mommy, look no teeth!”
The kid only laughingly stated
As back up hill he ventured
If only to once more ride
Before getting his dentures

Names for the Daily Post, One

Posted in the Daily Post: Names

What’s in a name?
That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet”
William Shakespeare

What is in a name?
Does it come with fame?
If it doesn’t suite you, who’s to blame?
It’s all the same:
Just use what ever name they gave
And continue playing the game
