An Open Letter to Winter

Dear Winter,

Oh Winter, where did we go wrong? I remember eagerly awaiting your arrival. You meant warm, fuzzy sweaters, hats, cookies & cocoa, soup by the fire, and, of course, Christmas.

But Winter, you have overstayed your welcome. We are tired & bored with you Winter. We long to see our old friend Sunshine. We miss the park, the grass, the birds. We're tired of wet shoes, slushy sidewalks & runny noses.

Winter! Our skin is dry, our hair is full of static, our toes & fingers are so cold. We are tired of being your frozen prisoners. We have cabin fever and need to be free to run & play & sing again!

Don't make us beg Winter, please just leave quietly and invite your cousin Spring to come and stay awhile.

The Hendrix Family

Amen to that!! I'm so ready for spring . . . what a wonderfully clever letter!

Melanie said...

The Maynor family is with you on that one, too. Static is out of control over here.

Crabby Rangoon said... I love winter. Think you could send Winter to Hong Kong as an exchange student?

Christine Gordon said...

Amen and Amen. I was cursing the ice yesterday. Yes, I know God made it and it's beautiful. But, enough already.

Andi said...

if i could i would wrap winter in a box & send it to you via air mail. you could keep him forever.

Kaele said...

Are you getting any of this warm weather now? Happiness! (2/19)

Dear Snow Slush,

In the future, please send notice of your arrival, as to prevent the wearing of my newly laundered slacks.
