As my dainty lips
Turn a pastel blue
I scrape my car
Looking ‘round for a clue
But no grass is showing
There’s no robin to sing
This new snow and ice
Has kidnapped my spring!

Then a squirrel waltzed by
With skis on his shoulder
Here’s his cab to the airport
He’s flying to Boulder.

There are itty-bitty paths
Zig-zagging near my boots
Oh, my god, it’s some ants
In little snow-mobile suits!

“Get outta the way!”
They holler together.
Is it only me
Not in love with this weather?

Standing 'round a puddle that’s frozen
The chipmunks are cutting a hole in the ice
“Last one in’s a Siamese cat!”
From the window a tabby said. “that isn’t nice!”

Snowmen barely the size of my toe
Ice skating sparrows play crack-the-whip
Then a bundled up worm offered me cocoa
So I finished my scraping and had a sip.

(I think it was made with dirt… ah, well)

Simply delightful, Katydid - and I'm very glad a little birdie told me to 'take a look!' This would be a marvelous winter cartoon, filled to the icy brim with smart little critters - and I truly believe that they are often much smarter than we humans (I just had to get that in!)

PS Cocoa with just a pinch of dirt is marvelous - but don't collect the dirt around any papermills or factories - it's best to get it in the deep dark forest - that worm could probably help you out finding just the right spot.

I heard the first robin yesterday, Katy. But then, this is the West Coast. I like the way you keep your sense of humor even when freezing. Nicely done. Love and peace. Regis

Ecellent write my friend!!!!
Reviewed by Daniel McTaggart
I've always suspected those strange noises during a blizzard were chipmunks building snowmen. Now Katydid has confirmed it. I just wish I could catch them throwing little, teeny snowballs at each other.

A brilliant "bird's eye view", Katy and methinks you should team up with El Kostro&Turner for a bit of the Piddlin Action and children's story book stuff. You are excellent at this - and without being gooey and icky. This has tickled my adult funny bone and giggled my brain in a "grown up" way, too... not that I would know too much about that...!! Love it and makes me smile intead of wearing my face upside down today when there's clothes than me trying to get about. TY LOLOLOL Kate xx

You better hope Kostro doesn't see this, or he will be up there to visit them little creatures...LOL, Ed

You sure got clever animals there. Our squirrels swim on their backs to keep their nuts dry.
