Winter Has Come
By Maurie Nord
How did you arrive so soon?
Where are all those long
And drowsy grade-five
Afternoons that never seemed to end?
The drone of study
And through the open classroom windows
The lull of bees buzzing
Will those damned hands ever get to three?
And not just one
But endless days like these
What happened to spring and summer?
What happened to those long days of June?
All of that to ponder and now wonder
How can Brian Wilson be seventy?
He is still having Fun Fun Fun
“Don’t ever get old kid
Don’t let ‘em put you in one o’
Them homes where they talk to you
Like yer a goddam baby”
I won’t old timer
Winter has come but I still get up
With the Lord in my heart
And spring in my step
