Winter’s Day

This icy cold this arctic blast

Takes me back in time

To a moment in my childhood

Coming home at dinner time

 

Myself and Tricia both at school

Walked home for lunch one day

Wrapped up against the winter chill

For dinners we did not stay

 

My balaclava kept me warm

As snow lay on the ground

Icy cold and freezing

It made a crinkling sound

 

And in the house a table set

Two little chairs beside

And there a roaring fire

The warmth of our fireside

 

The sight so filled my heart with joy

Delightedly I said,

Tricia haven’t we got a lovely home!

My mother remembered it

 

The frosty cold uncaring world

Brings challenges to us all

But a loving home to nurture us

Keeps the spirit tall
