Poet's Corner

Posted: Thursday, February 24, 2011


By Bill Lowe, Sterling

I often can't wait for the winter to mosey along,

and for the sound of a summer bird's new song.

But now I wonder, could this be right or wrong?

I sure love the winter without any grass to mow,

but then I need a shovel to push away the snow.

Do you recognize my thoughts going to 'n fro?

There's only two seasons in our beautiful state.

When the truth's out; they're really both great.

To hold back; is it also difficult for you to wait?

Come winter the weather may be cold outside,

but if I get out to ski, skate or take a sled ride,

isn't it much better than looking at a TV guide?

There's no end to adventures summer can bring.

In these great outdoors, I can do most anything.

And for fishing, is it time to catch a huge king?

Alaska is number one both seasons, no doubt!

In winter and summer, it's the best throughout,

so are these questions to be concerned about?
