Winter Sun
Bob Kimberly


Where is your warmth?
You rise late and retire early.
As you slide across the sky
Just above the chimney tops,
Your rays slant sideways
And brightly into our eyes,
But you donít melt snow,
Warm fingers and toes,
Or chase the frost away.
Oh, Winter Sun,
We miss the warmth
You share in summer
As you climb on high
Traversing the sky.

Fun and exceedingly timely, and yes, Michael, with charming humility.

Well, I fed the birds and went for a walk this morning at -32--beautiful! There's nothing like a crisp sunny winter morning in the northwoods.

Wonderful poem in its simplicity and use of interesting verbs. Bob makes his point with charming humility.

Yesterday the high temp. here was -20. (It's -35.7 this morning) The sun was shining so brightly in a blue sky and we were all asking the question you pose in this little gem.
