Winter Wonderland


Walk across the frozen fields

Inhale the frosty air

Nap before a blazing fire

Tall stories that we share

Etching angels in the snow

Reward the inner child


Wage a friendly snowball fight

Obsess, let joy run wild

Nutmeg, eggnog with cinnamon

Deep snowbanks edge the lane

Everything is fresh and new

Replacing autumns wane

Lakes attract the skaters

And to hills the skiers go, I’m

Never more alive then when I’m

Dancing in the snow

About oldmainer

I am a retired manager living in Southern Maine and a would be writer of poetry, narratives, short stories, and random opinions, and that's how Oldmainer was born. Recently, I decided to try an experiment. I added photography to the mix, using only a cheap cell phone with a limited camera and the editing software that came with it, and added the blog site Inklings at to showcase the results. So, feel free to use whatever you find interesting or worthy, but please honor the terms of my copyright when and if you do. They may not be much, but they are still a piece of me. I appreciate your checking me out and hope that you find something that will encourage a return visit. Thanks for stopping by.
