Winter

The grass is still green.
          But they say it’s winter.
The sun is shining.
          But they say it’s winter.
The temperature is 40 degrees.
         But they say it’s winter.
I am too warm in my knee-length parka.
         But they say it’s winter.
The snow falls from the sky
and piles on lawns and roads.
The temperature is in the teens;
I am warm in my downy parka
          Now it’s winter.
The snow falls again and again and again.
I shiver inside my parka.
         I’m sick of winter.
