I Have a Mermaid House in Florida,
Oh yes I do,
It makes me Happy,
When I’m Cold and my Fingers are Blue.
Snowbird Guests are there Now,
Enjoying the Pool,
Walking the Beach,
Enjoying the Sunshine, as is the Rule.
Yes, I have a House in Florida,
And on Days Like This,
I Close My Eyes Tight and Make a Wish.
I Wish that the Snow Will Melt,
Work won’t Call,
I’ll Hop the Next Plane to Florida,
And Forget It All.
But for Now, Florida Must Wait,
Snow still falling at a steady Gait,
School Doors Shut Tight, But Work does Call,
Careful Driving, Be Safe for Us All.
That House in Florida,
Will Still Sparkle and Shine,
A House in Florida,
So Glad it is Mine.
Waiting Not So Patiently for Spring. How About You?
Holding on to the Magic.
I feel your pain. And hoping the groundhog wasn’t messing with us.
We in Albuquerque are lucky … just enough snow to remind us it’s winter! My family in Northern Virginia just bought a home in Fort Myers for a winter getaway now and a retirement home later. They have really had a winter! Personally, I hate snow, cold and winter. By the way, love the big picture of Ms Doodle on the wall! What a wonderful picture and wonderful memory!
Nice poetry – we’ll be South soon.
