"By then I will have learned just about everything / About trying to keep a haunted house warm / In spite of the fact that it cannot be done / I will have proven my stubbornness and won"

Transcendental Sonnet #1289:

When Spring Comes


By the time my furnace is fixed it will be spring

And I will have survived the last winter storm

By then I will have learned just about everything

About trying to keep a haunted house warm

In spite of the fact that it cannot be done

I will have proven my stubbornness and won


All of my body-fat has disappeared

Along with a good measure of my sanity

I am as my daughter has always feared

Eating-disordered but not out of vanity

It is just that I have no appetite

And it causes me to shiver all night


Were it not for hot tea I would no longer be

When spring comes I think I will be all right

Steven, first of all my sincere condolences on the loss of Silkie, I was unaware. My heart goes out to you at such a painful time, and I can certainly see how this poem and the events leading up to it can happen, nut as you say I am sure she is still writing her beautiful words in heaven besides inspiring you to do yuor best. Great work and hang in there.

I hope you'll feel better very soon. Losing body fat is a good thing, but not to the extreme. Good job with this write.

Get an electric blanket, then go to Home Depot and buy all the insulation panels you can afford and work to be warm putting them up, that is what I do, although I admit my motorhome is not haunted except for with memories of past trips! You will never truly know cold till you live in a motorhome with a 1 inch thick wall separating the inside and the outside...Find Peace and EAT, Ed & Rufuz
