it could have been worse

it could have been worse
as the saying goes

and just tonight I was reminded
of such sorrows

as we watched you being loaded up
and my heart nearly froze

to see just what had happened
on the bright fallen snows

hearing of another's similar plight
and trying to suppose

what they must be going through
gives me bid to do as they propose

say a little prayer for those in need
and give thanks for what He bestows

to you and your minor injuries-
thankful it wasn't more than just blows

winter trip

climbing up
and back down again
I can't imagine the scene

of white upon white
skiing in such a place
so pure and pristine

I hope the time
will be a grand one
for all

one to be remembered
and looked back upon
with fond recall

ode to a baby

oh what a life you lead
every one catering to your
every need

one whimper, one squall,
one peep out of you
and everyone comes running
to see what they can do

but the love and the joy
you bring
can only make
your mother's heart sing
