I Went Wandering

The snow crunches beneath my feet
as I walk across the street
an arctic wind sends a chill down my spine
It stings my ears and makes them red
Wish I had a hat to cover my head
for this northeast winter is unkind
My direction holds no purpose
Just got up and left my fortress
seemed as good a time as any for a walk
In the distance kids are playing
Powdered snow is good for sleighing
moving closer still now I can hear them talk
I was once a youngster
A smart mouthed snotty nosed little monster
and I lived for days like this
Oh how I loved those snow days
early dismissals and two hour delays
A day at home was nothing short of bliss
