How to tell Winter is coming
Old Man Winter's Secret by Tina Crute
ABC Poetry Contest contest entry
Artwork by helvi2 at

Hints tell of winter, like clues to be found, as
Icicles glimmer and frost coats the ground.
Just as a present is saved for its day,
Kisses of snow may soon come our way, but
Old Man Winter refuses to say.


Author Notes
Old Man Winter gives clue to his arrival with icicles and frost, but he refuses to say when we will get "kisses of snow."

Thanks to helvi2 for the artwork.
