The weather lady said we're snowed in again Of course, she didn't need to tell me that It happens a couple of times each winter In my secluded mountain valley flat ~*~*~*~ Friends are always urging me to move But they don't know what I know I love the warm and fuzzy feeling I get Being surrounded by all this snow ~*~*~*~ I'm blessed with a dozen or so neighbors And we all look out for each other Times like this, we're all we've got With every family depending on another ~*~*~*~ My freezer and pantry are very well stocked Guess that's what comes from planning ahead I have lots of firewood in case the furnace dies And several heavy, warm quilts on my bed ~*~*~*~ The nights are so quiet and peaceful No proverbial creatures are stirring The fire is crackling; the wind is blowing And I hear a distant snowmobile whirring ~*~*~*~ Snuggled down in my big featherbed I thank God for all His blessings And for letting me live yet another year In my valley with its wintry dressings ~*~*~*~ Kathleen McCoy Eldridge© June 12, 2007 All Rights Reserved
