A chillin’ kiss on frosty morn,
On every blade and flower adorns.
As summer fades and autumn is born
The icy dew does bid us warned.
For soon the nights will be long and cold
As winter slips in to take its hold.
So cherish for now each warm sunny day,
As they skip on the breeze and fade away.

I wrote this poem last October 3rd, 2013 on my garden blog, Gardens Eye View, in anticipation of the coming frost. Frost came suddenly in late October that year, and the pictures here show the killing frost in the garden readying the landscape for winter’s chill and frozen time.
I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog. Visit them to read some more wonderful verse.
Special Note: This year we waited until the middle of November for our killing frost which came with snow.
I leave you with a little bit of sentiment about keeping warm in frosty cold. I welcome you to download the photo and share.
