Warmly Dressed ~

A small boy, warmly dressed 
ran out into the snow and was caressed 
by its soft and chilling white 
then got into a snowball fight ~

A young lad bound for school 
plodded through the pristine cool
with thoughts of classmates on his mind
he left his footfalls etched behind ~

A young man was stalled in his car 
his job awaited him afar 
he could not make the usual trip 
for he was a victim of the winter's grip ~

An older man, now retired 
shoveled a pathway through his yard 
the winter to him was a discomforting thing 
his thoughts were on the warmth of spring ~

An ancient man through his window peered 
his eyes turned red, then lightly teared 
he remembered he had once been blessed 
he had been a small boy, warmly dressed ~
I am taking a break from blogging for the rest of November.
Life is just so busy and I need time to take care of some important events.
See you in December.
Peace and joy to all of my blogger friends.
I have met so many wonderful people since I have come back to blogging.
Thanks to everyone for taking the time to visit me and leave your comments.

Love ...



  1. heart tug!
    nice step through the ages of man...
    and how we approach something that once brought us joy.

  2. Margie,

    A beautiful timeline , captured in winter's snowfall.

    I wish you well during November Margie. Enjoy your sojourn and return refreshed.
    We all need time away, at times.
    Best wishes,
    Eileen :)

  3. I look forward to your return.

  4. Margie, I am always waiting for your new poem.

    This poem is about Time. And about the meaning of Time. Your story begins long ago with a small boy warmly dressed and ends with a small boy warmly dressed in the memories of an ancient man. How beautiful it is! How touching! And this poem about the circle of our life. Beautiful philosophical poem, my dear Margie!!!

    I wish you a nice break, Margie! Relaxing and peaceful! And I will be waiting patiently for your return, my dear talented friend.

    Always yours, Kaya.

  5. A very lovely poem. I liked it very much. Enjoy your time off and I'll be looking forward to your return.

  6. Beautiful poem, it takes you on such a thoughtful journey. I hope you have a wonderful November!

  7. Beautiful poem! Enjoy your time off. I hope November is a wonderful month for you.

  8. :) Good luck and I hope November is great!

  9. I just finished shovelling the sidewalks and a path through the yard. You certainly understand!

    Hope you have a great November.

    Blessings and Bear hugs!

  10. Wonderful poem. It expresses well the perspectives of the different generations on the same thing. So precious and so poignant. Enjoy your November. Hugs. xx

  11. What you write always touches my heart, time never ends, it's always a revolving doors, take care angel, see you in a month xxx

  12. Hi Margie! You have been such a faithful blog-friend to me, I want you to know how much I appreciate your blog-friendship. I hope your time off will be productive but restful too. The holidays can be stressful, I completely understand your need to take a break.

    Know I will keep you in my prayers. You have such a wonderful following here, I'm sure you will be covered with prayer and good wishes. You should be!!
    Have a wonderful month away. Can't wait to see you again, not gonna lie!

  13. Winter is approaching, and so your poem is very relevant. Boy, lad, young man, old man, ancient man - each with his own winter perspective.
    Have a terrific November, Margie!

  14. Full circle - I am experiencing deja vu. Have a good break, Margie. I normally take a blog rest the end of November into the new year.

  15. I hope there's a beautiful little store somewhere with magical very cheap objects that mirrors light and has it dancing around, all magic for you....of course if you have very dear friends...'ya know, that love light, anyhoo have a ball with handsome

  25. Lovely post, as always :)Have an awesome November :)

  26. Your poem reminds me of the Shel Silverstein book, "The Giving Tree," which I like very much. Both make me think of the phases of life, which are not the same for everyone; yet nothing stays the same throughout our lifetime.

  27. Oh, Blessings to you as you give attention to other parts of your life this November. xo

  34. A lovely poem as always, Margie. And thank you so much for your support, it is deeply appreciated. Much love, Carole xx

  35. How lovely of you to share someone's writing, a person who supports you through difficult times. Having spent a small part of my life as a minister in the Church of England, I too find help from reading such people, though not always belonging to my faith, or to no definite faith at all. I don't think I could exist without them. I must look at his work xx caroleannecarr@sky.com

  36. Have found his audiobooks, sound very interesting.

  37. They say that on occasion an angel will be dropped on earth for some purpose never identifying nor expressing who she is, and the love that she is brings the love that we so badly, often they are persecuted for no reason at all only because there is something special that not everybody is willing to accept. I accept that I met this angel and would she kindly bring her lovely little butt back here. 'Cause oh maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan I miss her, and all the Love she brings along so to her major hugsOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO AND KISSES XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXSee 'ya later, angel alligator hi haw, miss you xx

  38. You are getting very good at the poesy.

  39. You used to ride, great. My two Ironbridge Gorge series include them because they were used in the mines and my son used to breed Arabians, so I grew to know them. Thank you so much for your support, much appreciated. xx

  40. My dear Margie, you have been missed very much. I came to say hello to you and to wish you a very nice and happy Thanksgiving.

    I hope everything OK and you will have a good time with your family during Thanksgiving!

    I am waiting for your return, my dear friend. I am sending to you my very best wishes and a warm loving hug.

    Your friend Kaya.

  41. Beautiful poem. Enjoy your blog-break! :-)

    Greetings from London.

  42. Beautifully written! I am here after a long time. Glad to see that you are still writing! Many people from my blogroll have stopped.

    Keep writing!

    (Hope you still remember me :))

  43. Wishing you a wonderful family time, much love, Carole xx

  44. And the attitude to children within this poetry hasn't changed so very much over the centuries, Margie xx

  45. Hope you had a great time, Margie. Well one more birthday over, many visitors for meals this week, but have spent a couple hours on River Dark, so making progress xx

  46. Never been to Vegas Margie, but can imagine what it is like. My only knowledge of America is from my visits to Atlanta and further down the coast. Thanks as always for your kind support, have a great time with your Granddaughter. xx

  47. So sorry to hear about the virus, Margie, I do hope you and your Granddaughter soon feel bouncy and happy again xx

  48. Hope you're well, Margie.We miss you!!

  49. You are so missed, please take care of yourself, and don't make yourself sicker by taking care of others who are sick, Miss you so

  50. And where is Margie? It's already the begging of December and you are not here yet. Margie, I miss you. I am waiting for you very much.

    I hope everything is going well in your life.

    I am sending you my very best wishes, dear friend!

  51. Seems we are all waiting for you Margie, are you not better, or is it another thing entirely ....people miss you beautiful loving poems, do you not feel the love, anymore? You hide from those who care about you...I have an idea of why, and I hope I'm wrong....is your foot, ankle and knee still sore, what can I or all of your friends do to help you...become the angel you are

  52. Many, many thanks to all that have visited and left a comment.
    You are all very dear to my heart.
