    Melancholy Skies of Azure Blue

    Melancholy skies of azure blue,
    Peppered with clouds of harbor gray
    Set the mood on a cold winter day.

    Fresh snow fell like Chantilly lacy veils,
    Covering grasses and adorning trees,
    Swirl skyward in the northwestern breeze.

    I curl up and tuck in tight to watch
    The flames dance from log to log
    While I sip my hot rum nog.

    Feathered friends galore fly in and
    Jostle for limited, precious seed.
    Each scattered handful elicits a stampede.

    Bushy tails hopping afar
    Seeking rations in winterís dearth,
    Scamper to warrens deep in the earth.

    Thickets hide eight prancing deer.
    They proclaim the coming Christmas
    And Godís gift of His Son to us.

    So give thanks in spite of gloomy skies.
    This season too will join the past.
    The joy of life is what will last.

    How beautiful.
    You paint lovely pictures with this poem.
    Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty
    ~Albert Einstein
