Where's Winter?

On Christmas Morn’ I donned my coat,

Stepped cheerily o’er my flip flops,

And stepped outside to breath in cold

But encountered steamy raindrops.

What dark magic is upon us?

Where snow should ere’ be found?

Yet all around me blossoms

And green grass on the ground?

Had winter thus forsaken me

And quietly passed by?

What of tasting Winter’s bounty

While lifting tongue to sky?

What of angels on Earth, I cry!

What of woodsmoke fire, I ask!

When behold my husband calls to me

“We’re in Texas, dumb-ass.”

Author's Notes:
I'm feeling pretty silly today.  The end sentence is actually quite accurate in quoting something my husband would say.  Hope you enjoy.  This was born out of the daily challenge on Ann's Poetry Calendar.

This year Winter has decided to take a little longer,
be careful though, his winds will just blow stronger.
Nicely done Dori, Joe

This was great I loved the last line. Reminds me of being in California last week, where I got to go to a California snow party. They brought in fake snow by the truck loads just to have a party. I laughed so hard I was in tears, thinking I came here from Ohio to see fake snow.  I can absolutely agree with this though where is the winter this year.
