Winter Morning

"Winter Morning Poem" by Ogden Nash

Winter is the king of showmen
Turning tree stumps into snow men
And houses into birthday cakes
And spreading sugar over lakes
Smooth and clean and frosty white
The world looks good enough to bite
That's the season to be young
Catching snowflakes on your tongue
Snow is snowy when it's snowing
I'm sorry it's slushy when it's going

Early Frost (painting by Kathleen Eaton)

Thank you, Teresa. It has been a tough season for capturing winter's beauty, even in Michigan's Upper Peninsula!
