“Winter Morning” by Robert O. Adair


The frosty air,
chilling as death!
Ice hard as stone!
Plaintive wind howling.
Lone farm house,
light from the kitchen window
spilling out over the snow.
Farm wife bustling about,
coffee perking on the stove,
warm aroma of
scrambled eggs, flapjacks
and sweet maple syrup
floating through the kitchen!
A warm oasis of life
amid the empty
wintry desolation!
