Poem: For Once I'd Like To Know
...just posting a poem to see if it works!!! (word program)-A little poem of winter, written many years ago!
Looks like it will! :)
I wrote this at a time when my sister was living in Pa, and I in sunny south Flrida!
At times I thought she had the better deal- with the snowy winters- She did not think so! :)
For Once I’d Like to Know
For once I’d like to know the feel of
and cold upon my nose and on my hair…
imagine days on days of overcast,
without a sight of sunshine-
no birds to sing or fly!
Still…lovely it must be.
The whole world - whitest white!
Transformed so silently -
like magic in the night!
I’m far from winter lands!
So far from ice and snow!
I only can imagine,
can never really know!
Just once I’d like to know,
to really feel somehow…
the touch of snowflakes falling
upon my nose and brow!
(Written in ‘70s)
NOW-I need to tackle the picture thing!!
