WET, WET, WET

It's Winter in the Southern Hemisphere and Winter solstice approaches next week. We have wet, cool weather and here is a poem I wrote to celebrate Winter's Wwwwwwwww's!

Welcome the Winter Weather

A rain shower, wetting leaves and washing clean the garden -
Water trickles and weaves intricate patterns
Of winding rivulets as it wends its way amongst the weeds.

Winter's wet weather soaks wildflower seeds
And will ensure a crop of winsome bouquets in a few weeks:
Winterberry, wisteria, woodruff, windflower and wreath of wallflowers...

The wind stirs wistful branches of willows weeping
And wizened twigs of witch-hazel writhe,
As inside, a warming fire burns, fuelled by walnut wood.

Warlock Winter has arrived wearing furs
And wishing us a wondrous white season;
Welcome the Winter weather with wassail warm,
Wail, whine and whimper not,
For Spring will surely Winter follow.
