The Birth of the Cold

I don’t care what my calendar says

Winter started today

Winter is the most obnoxious season

no other season makes such a rude entrance.

Spring melts Winter

then Summer scorches Spring

till Autumn falls Summer

then Fall falls to Winter

each season is stronger than its predecessor

then weaker than its successor

while tonight Winter waits for no calendar

sure December 21 6:03 pm might be set in print

and circled

as Old Man Winter’s due date

but tonight Mother Nature has other plans

and while the calendar may read November

this snow storm

is Old Man Winter crashing Autumn’s party

as fallen leaves are buried

beneath this first snowfall.
