A Cold Wintery Night


My friend, Rosalie, send me an e-mail today with the following winter poem in it.
With the winds huffing and puffing this evening, unfurling sackfuls of powdery petals into the night air, I thought the weather matched the sentiments of this unknown Canadian poet.

So here's to frosty nights and humorous poets!

It's winter here in Canada
And the gentle breezes blow
Seventy miles an hour
At thirty-five below.

Oh, how I love my Canada
When the snow's up to your 'butt'
You take a breath of winter
And your nose gets frozen shut.

Yes, the weather here is wonderful
So I guess I'll hang around
I could never leave my Canada
I'm frozen to the ground!

  1. I can always count on a creative tidbit when I visit. Thank you.


  2. Too funny! A good laugh helps keep it all in perspective!

  3. it's not just canada that feels that way. funny poem

  4. Okay... so I'm guessing that this poet isn't the president of his local Chamber of Commerce. He's certainly not a member in good standing of the tourist council.

    Great poem! Loved it! However I'm not too inclined to visit Canada until a month or two after your spring thaw...

  5. Fun! I'll have to tell my Canadian cousins about this poem. They'd love it.

    I'm enjoying your blog!

  6. That's a cute poem...and about how I feel down here in Ohio!

  7. This is just too good, my new friend!!! I have a friend that lives in Manitoba, and today she told me she had pretty near put on everything she had to get the kids off to school!!

  8. Funny poem LOL, and true too.That is our Canada our home and native land.

  9. Thanks to each of you for leaving a footprint in my day.... kudos to that unknown winter poet for giving us all something to talk about!
