Here Comes the Wintertime

Hi everyone, I hope you’re all well! Well, winter’s certainly upon us now, isn’t it? We’ve had a few days of snow and ice here in the north of England at the time of writing and, although I love to see this weather – from my living room window – being outside in it is something else entirely! I hope none of you was too badly affected by Storm Arwen as it passed across the UK. We lost a few roof tiles but I know a few that had it worse. And the woods behind our house lost quite a lot of trees as well. I’ve never seen so many trees ripped up out of the ground by bad weather before. It looked almost apocalyptic.

Anyway – I digress (as I often do). I’m sharing a poem with you today. I hope you enjoy it!

Here Comes the Wintertime

Here comes again the wintertime
When the frost nips at you hard
And when snowflakes fall down in soft sheets
That blanket all the yards

Here comes again the winter wind
That moves the frigid air
And helps the icy raindrops fall
To leave frozen puddles everywhere

Here come again the crystal nights
So clear you could count the stars
And here comes that frosty sparkle
That appears on pavements and on cars

Here comes the darkened, shorter days
And the yellow of window panes
And here comes too, the trees and lights
And stripy candy canes
Here comes again the wintertime
A beautifully festive season
One of my favourite times of the year
Because of all these reasons

As always, thank you so much for spending some of your time with me today, It really does mean a lot!

Until next time,
