Frosty Friday

Jack Frost was here last night
The wind in the trees has a special bite
Snow covers the slopes in the mountains high
As the geese and their young begin to fly.

November transitions from warm to cold
As winter begins to take a hold
Bare trees shudder and go to sleep
Awaiting the snow so white and deep.

Soon December will enter in
And winter will say "I win, I win"
Thus, for a time, the world stands still
Bundled up warm, we wait, until

Springtime again shows her face of green
A more lovely site is never seen
As we watch life starting up anew
Something we always look forward to.

Brrrrrrrr! If you need to warm up you can come over here and visit Mistrie. Your beds are nice and toasty though. It just looks kind of cold to me. You're always welcome, though, even if you're warm enough.
your bestest furriend Gree

Meowz to the piney woods cats and the mommy! I hope you do not think me too ungracious of a kitty for taking such a long time to return your visit. You can only imagine how happy I was to see you come cheer me on while I was so very sick. Mommy was heartbroken and thought for sure I would not regain any of my spirit and was prepared for the worst. But I was worth a small miracle. With your purrrayers and some good medicine, I have regained my strength day by day. Mommy would not have made it through her worries about me without your comfort. Each night we keep you in our prayers and wish you endless Blessings this Thanksgiving season.
Love and hugs from our house to yours, Miss Peach and the mommy
who love the wonderful poetry you wrote!!
