Endless WInter

You're never a loser until you quit trying.  ~Mike Ditka

Endless Winter

Indoor recess AGAIN? You’re
kidding me! Spring is never
going to get here! Oh, well. Grab a
board – mancala, chess, Clue – there’s no loser
in a never-ending game. We’ll play until
…what’s that you
say? The snow has quit?
The sun is shining…or at least trying?!?

  1. Ha! This has been the truth this year. I love the joy of getting back outside. (And the quote speaks great truth.)

  2. It must have been a really long winter in Ohio! It keeps showing up in poems and slices! I'm glad it's coming to an end!

  3. This sounds like a poem that I could have written. We finally had a few days of sunny spring weather recently. Now it is cold and rainy. I wish spring would come and stay!

  4. Love this - " loser in a never-ending game." And then the surprise at the end. Hope your sun keeps trying!
