Trees in Winter

I was sitting in the car the other day waiting on Mr D. and noticed how the sun shining on these trees made the branches look like they were covered with ice.  They were icy white and as the wind blew you could see little sparkles here and there.  It surely wasn't any ice around my part of the world that day, the sun was just playing a trick on me!  I wanted to catch those sparkles in a picture but my camera just didn't want to co-operate.
Aren’t you cold and won’t you freeze,
With branches bare, you winter trees?
You’ve thrown away your summer shift,
Your autumn gold has come adrift.
Dearie me, you winter trees,
What strange behavior, if you please!
In summer you could wear much less,
But come the winter – you undress!

Until Next Time
Staying in and trying to get well!
(Achew, cough, cough)   (grrrrrr)


  1. Isn't it odd how things like that happen with the trees...and I really liked the poem about the attire of the trees in winter. Praying for you.

  2. Such a sweet little poem, dear Mary! Hmmm...although it is summer here, we are experiencing some chilly weather which certainly calls for some snuggles on the couch with little sisters and some Jane Austen movies! Get well very soon! Hugs to you, Kelly-Anne

  3. Your posts are always so sweet and kind....just like you! HOPE you're all better soon.

  4. The trees are so pretty and all dressed up! Get well soon.
