Holiday remembered......

The wreaths on the doors
The school bell,  green garland'd
snow blown inside the barn
red berries amongst the balsam & pine
frozen apples in the tree
the wooden shingles dusted in white
the holiday, remembered.

Big Trouble.....

It's cold, but not that cold.
There's ice on the lake,
but it's not that thick yet.
And these are not duckfrogs.
They're real ducks. They float
and fly as well as walk.
And you should know better
than to follow 'quacks' in the ice.

Pie in the sky

It really hurts when a frozen apple hits you
squarely on the head. It's so dangerous
in the woods these days. Not just lions
and tigers and bears (oh my!) but unexpected
things falling from above. And a frozen
apple doesn't even taste that good.
