It’s the perfect season
for the weather to do some teasin’!
Yes, frequently the temperature is subfreezing
But the sky doesn’t always have the cohesion!
Look outside on any sunny winter day,
Seems like a perfect time to go out and away…
But then you think about stepping outdoors
Only to face the pratfall on the ground’s icy floors!
And even when the sun shines bright
The cold will very well sap your might
For all the cheeriness that the sun can bring
The schvitzed shirt under a thousand layers you must later wring.
Oh, and how could I forget bright sun
Shortly after a snowstorm is done?
Albedo comes to stun your eyes
Much more effectively than you realize.
And when the sun inevitably hides it face
To bring dreary days that will not efface
You would wish that the sun came back
Even though it doesn’t predict the wind’s attack!
Yes, I wouldn’t trade winter’s sunlight for the clouds
The brightness outside can make any stranded soul proud…
The sun proves that the snow will eventually melt
As you get to later exult with another winter under your belt!
Today is the three-hundred and seventy-seventh day of Mission 441. Sixty-four days remain.
