A Winter Poem


It's winter in Pennsylvania

And the gentle breezes blow
Seventy miles an hour
At thirty-five below.

Oh, how I love Pennsylvania

When the snow's up to your butt
You take a breath of winter
And your nose gets frozen shut.

Yes, the weather here is wonderful
So I guess I'll hang around
I could never leave Pennsylvania

I'm frozen to the ground!!


  1. Too funny. I can relate, I just need to substitute Pennsylvania for Wisconsin. Stay warm!

  2. Oh, la. I am still laughing!!!!Such a cute poem. I used to live in Pgh (back in the day!) We used to call them "townships" Penn Township was where I lived.Thanks for your visit.

  3. Too Funny! Love the poem. Its not much warmer here in Maryland :)

  4. Lovely poem. I can relate. We lived for 2 years in the Poconos a few years ago. After 2 nasty winters of freezing cold temps, and all the heaving of snow...we headed strait to Arizona. Now in Texas...I couldn't even think of returning to a winter state. Well, never say never I guess. Tis pretty though!
