Winter Months


The collapsible lemonade stand

is packed, and taken down.

Amongst the many other things

that Summer's all about.

Just like a flannel'd scarecrow

or rakes to clear the yard.

When Autumn's fall is over

there put back in the garage,

And, Spring much like the others

after sprouting from a bud.

The hedge that grows a flower

whithers, then it's gone,

But different then it's sisters

in the Winter months it seems

people always come together

when all the seasons freeze.

Our families all around us

sharing precious times.

Gifts we have for loved ones

or the presents that they buy.

It reminds us what's important.

For the problems and the tears

packed away like decorations

each winter every year.
