Now that Winter's gloom has

begun to herald a worsening

clime - I check that provisoning

will get me through - the tins of

extra food for what-if occasions

even though we live in a temperate

zone and are usually spared the

howling arctic winds. Watch the


behaviour of the wildlife I heard

it said - see how the squirrels put

away their wintery stocks and view

them as  guide to what may lie

ahead - lest windows freeze across

with solid ice and gelid temperatures

dictate you pull the blankets back

and remain snuggled down in bed
