winter settles in to stay
in a blanket of icy air
that seeps over the earth
in creeping fingers of frost
as I hop
rug to rug
to my dresser, to my special emergency stash

with a creak
I pull open a long closed drawer
my nose wrinkling from a musty smell
a faint odor of moth balls assaults my nose too
while numb fingers dig through
mismatched pairs of striped pink socks
one rainbow hued multi-toed mate
a knee high woolen creation in brilliant blue
my toes aching for some comfort

socks carelessly scattering
under my frantic hands
rudely tossed from summer's repose
to the chilly wood floor
in my search for a fluffy warm matched pair

my bare feet cry out for some comfort
and I think, "what the heck" and grab a yellow woolie
and pair it with a zebra striped slipper sock
sighing in relief as I slip them upon frigid toes

feet softly thumping
down stairs of icy wood
as I settle back by the fire
all cozy with my book
and a steaming mug
pretending to ignore a hilarious questioning glare
that is being cast upon my warming toes
by my giggling (soon to be glared back at) true love

My little toes were twitching reading this, for two reasons.

1) The poem is a great read.
2) The writer is a great person.

Post more soon. ( Please )

Yes, I admit your general rule. That every poet is a fool:
But I myself may serve to show it. That every fool is not a poet.
