Bitter Winds--By George L. Ellison--England

Bitter Winds

The forecast is for bitter winds
Hail and sleet and snow
When I ask will it ever end
I simply do not know

It seems to me to have been like this
For a year; a day give or take
So surely the end must now be in sight
Those bitter winds will relent and leave take

What joy there will be when settled weather
Once more graces us with its presence
Shining sun and azure blue skies
A joy to behold in some measure

  1. This was very lovely George... a pleasure to read for you.. think spring.. it has finally arrived.... God bless

  2. Weather never bothers me - until it come to the wind! Long Island, NY has her share of the winds almost daily. Enjoyable read George - keep your pen flowing...

  3. A time to stay cozy inside but
    as you say how beautiful the sunny weather is
    when it appears.
