“ A Lazy Winter Day ” ~ drizzly and grey ~


It’s a lazy winter’s day

Drizzly and grey,

Abiding bedims’ tune,

Bordering on gloom

Of short winter days,

And gusty afternoons

That begs for sunshine

Ever gone too soon,

As if forced to decline

Behind a wistful moon,

Frustrating sun’s way

Arresting its warm boon,

On a lazy winter’s day!

    • Thanks again Paulette… and what you read is what we had, and worst, going for us for quite a few days with ice storms. The kind that turned our streets and sidewalks to skating rinks, with tree branches ladened with ice two inches thick, that caused breakage like you could not imagine. Yes California droughts, I remember them well, back in the early eighties when I was living in Los Angeles. Jean-Jacques

  1. A wonderful post – perfect for me since I just returned from Calgary where temperatures were minus 25 when I landed. I hadn’t felt that brisk chill for a long time. The snow was dry compared to Vancouver’s wet snow that comes and goes within a few days. The gusts were there!

    I quite agree – there is something about winters, especially in the months of January and February that make me want to hibernate with a good book and a hot cup of tea. What was it that C.S. Lewis said (and I am certain that he said it in winter)?

    “You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”

    • Thank you Rebecca, and appropriate words indeed from Mr Lewis. Fits our winter’s temperament right on, and especially in the eastern part of Canada where getting snowed in is a habit. Jean-Jacques
