Storms Foretold

This storm brings back the former years

When my dear Daddy’s brain and brawn

Were all we had to rely on.

No TV weatherman to tell

The depth of snow before it fell.

With Dad on watch we had no fears.

He seemed to know without TV

How long the winter storm would be.

Our pantry was pre-filled with food.

The big box over-flowed with wood.

No storm could catch him unprepared.

He saw with his wise weather eye

If clouds would stay or roll on by.

And when a blizzard he deemed due,

He’d say, “No school today for you.”

Thus from the danger we were spared.

No weatherman today can know

As much as Daddy did of snow.

October / November / December


My poetry is made up of rhymes and thoughts that I have written down in the last twenty years of my life. They are memories of my early life and laments about my advanced age and a bit about my surroundings and my family. I have written about flowers and nature but those have been published in another resource so I have not included an excess of them here. Please read and enjoy. I was eighty years old before I wrote a single one of them.
