Wrapped so tightly in my snowsuit...can't breathe
Rolled to the top of the hill
And swished to the bottom

Saturday, December 29, 2012


I asked for a flower and you gave me a field.
I asked for a violin and you gave me an orchestra.
I asked for a fish and you gave me an ocean.
You give me better than I deserve.

Drama Onstage and Off

Funny, happy
Laughing, smiling, cheering
Both part of life
Crying, sighing, dying
Serious, sad

Strings of cranberries
Popcorn garlands
Silver balls

Joey dragged his sled uphill.

Speeding down was a great thrill.

Snow Boots

Snow Boots
Fur-lined Rubber
Keeping my feet warm and dry
Sitting safely in the ski lodge
Don't want to get them wet!

Tommy Miller

Tommy Miller sat in a thriller
Watching his knuckles turn white
He got quite a scare and jumped in the air
He ran from the show into the night.

Little Mister Tate

Little Mister Tate was habitually late.
He missed so much of his life.
He didn't feel great that Mister Tate
For his world was filled with strife.

Snowman Magic?

Hoping this top hat still has some magic
I am building a snowman.
I want an adventure.

A Conversation with a Gingerbread House

"Oh, Gingerbread House,
You taunt me.
You look delicious."
"You want me?
I'm not very good."

"You are."
"Your little sister licked her fingers
all the while she built me."
"Never mind."

Oh Those Flies!

I just want to say, “I’m out of here!”
I’m in the dining room
I found a fly,
Another fly,
Another fly,
There are too many flies.
Let me fall to pieces in peace.

Long Dark Nights

The longest nights
Days are getting shorter
I find this all so depressing

Winter to Summer

Darker, Colder
Snowing, Hailing, Sleeting
Six months till summer
Warming, Glowing, Brightening
Lighter, Hotter

I should be sleeping,
But I am weeping
About the water
That is creeping.

Snow Day

Snow Day
Celebrating my fortune
Out in the cold then inside warm
I have no school today!

Ducky Lucky

Ducky Lucky sat on a tack,
Fell over backward and threw out his back.
All of the nurses and all of the docs
Took care of Ducky and gave him new socks.
