Munday on Monday: Wintertime

Wintertime

With wintry wind a-howlin’ mean

I sweep aside with wrath

The dusting of the fallen snow

That coats the driveway path.

Then, on my hands and knees, I sift

The snow-grains, white and ghostly;

My quest is unsuccessful, though;

I’m finding acorns, mostly.

Then someone asks the purpose of

This curious attack;

“I’m looking for the darned receipt

To send this winter back!”
