Snow boots, or: Sandals

A limerick

Stubborn, I flout those "cold weather blues".
What? Snow boots? Nay, I must refuse!
In fact, if you must know,
Those footprints in the snow
Were made sandaled, for I eschew shoes!

d’Verse poetics prompt: Come sing with me!

At d’Verse, poets were encouraged to use at least two of the following wintry song titles in a poem:

  • A Hazy Shade of Winter (Simon and Garfunkel)
  • A Long December (Counting Crows)
  • A Winterโ€™s Tale (Queen โ€” and also The Moody Blues)
  • Cold Weather Blues (Muddy Waters)
  • Footprints in the Snow (Bill Monroe)
  • If We Make It Through December (Merle Haggard)
  • Iโ€™ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm (Billie Holiday)
  • Let It Go (Idina Menzel)
  • Love Like Winter (AFI)
  • My Love Is Winter (The Smashing Pumpkins Oceania)
  • Roses from Snow (Emmylou Harris)
  • The Hounds of Winter (Sting)
  • Trapped Under Ice (Metallica)
  • When Itโ€™s Cold, Iโ€™d Like to Die (Moby)
  • Winter Things (Ariana Grande)
  • White Winter Hymnal (Fleet Foxes)

Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)

Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!
