Terzanelle | Winter Approaching

Winter Approaching

Winter fast approaching, snow already for some a threat.
A few consider snow a treat, at least from behind windows,
Where fires burn, warmth indoors is thermostatically set.

Cold, frosty mornings, the sun melts ice where it shows.
Sounds of these days many, but one a nasty scraping.
A few consider snow a treat, at least from behind windows.

If there is a chance there will be some snowman making.
Car windScreens scraped allowing drivers to see roads.
Sounds of these days many, but one a nasty scraping.

Frost moved from windows and many roads in loads.
Making vision clear and most roads safe to drive on.
Car windscreens scraped allowing drivers to see roads.

Accidents few and far between, meaning no diversion.
Pedestrians, for them, sidewalks, pavements all salted.
Making vision clear and roads, well most, safe to drive on.

Shops, malls, flashing coloured signs, eyes light assaulted.
Winter fast approaching, snow already for some a threat.
Santa Clause, letter post requests, now online consulted.
Where fires burn, warmth indoors is thermostatically set.
