I'd like to share a little something I wrote today..

It's January. The snows come down.
Or sideways. Or upways. Or all around.

The rainfalls freeze. The sky is gray.
But still I go to work each day.

I check each book. I shelve each tome.
I long to chuck it and go home.

My lashes droop. My eyelids sting.
I'm mad at every frigging thing.

I want some cocoa and my bed.
I want to rest my weary head.

Or curl up with my yarns & yawns
and watch Top Model marathons.

It's winter! Time to hibernate!
Of course each morning I am late!

This is no time for jobs or chores
outside our insulated doors.

Why won't the world just think like me
and, until spring, just leave me be?
