Taking The Sun in January

By John I. Blair

In Minneapolis, New Yearís Day,
Hundreds turn blue in Excelsior Bay.

Ice castles tower in Montreal
While snowflakes fall.

At Beaver Creek, Vail and Stowe,
Hardy souls ski to the valleys below.

Here in Texas I sit on the deck
Hoping for juncos, sun on my neck.

Winterís soft in the South.
