 Getting Ready for Winter52
My car is greased and checked
My furnace is called to account
The bird feeders are up
And filled with suet and seed
Today I bought new boots
Short and warm and cleated
So I won't slip on the ice
I made my cranberry pudding
And steamed it in the steamer
I turned on all the lights at once
In the living room
I bought two tape recorders and microphones
So I can exchange letters
With my blind friend far south
Getting ready for winter
For the dark that is coming
For the long, dark time.
