Savouring Winter

Savouring winter… the last settled days
before we get ready to soak up the sun.
The pace will pick up with spring 'round the bend
so I’m savouring winter until it is done.

Time to make doughnuts, read one story more
wrap up in a quilt when it's windy outside.
Work slowly, and quiet, on projects I love...
savouring winter, and all things inside.

In spring we’re alive! all the world’s in a twirl
the rush will be on to get seed in the ground.
But I love the slow days, and the peace… ah, the peace
I’m savouring winter…  til spring rolls around.
