The bins are full of grain.

The harvest beat the rain.

I have a winters worth of meat.

The, hunting could not be beat.

I have wood stacked in a pile.

I have been sewing furs for a while.

The cabin is warm and dry.

If I keep the fire going, I will not die.

I have everything I sought.

So, why this nagging thought?

Oh, damn, I know what it is I think.

I forgot the water I need to drink....

Timely thoughts - and providential,
Reminding us of what's essential;
When nature tends to do her worst
Be sure to take care of the thirst ! 😋

Another poem well rhymed, tinged with humour and the comforting thought that you beat the harvest and are prepared for the winter. Water is essential but in my case an absence of Guinness would ring the alarm bells.

Thank you for this

Hi J.D.
This is the place to spend those long dark and dank winter nights.

Paper and quill are essential items to stock up on as well as candles.

Some Poitín and some sloe gin perhaps and what else does a poet need?

Enjoyed reading about the squirreling away of all but the one vital ingredient.

We would all be stuffed without H20 eh?
