Graced with a Green Hat
and so it arrived in the mail...on a snow day where the Snow maker gave us just enough to brighten the Feburary look about our town
I opened this flattish manilla envelope...tsking Grace, she just shouldnt have,
tsk, tsk, tsk,
no matter what was in the envelope....
and then I unwrapped the tissue with her green words hinting .....a little something for you...
and there it was
a green cabled hat.
So soft ....and so green
i now know I cannot hate March ever again.
i put it on my head and it
like the magic hat of a snowman before me,
made me do a happy dance.
I know it wont be coming off my head all day,
the old house is chilly even with the goodenss of radiant heat.
and I will
oh i will glance at myself in the mirror, more than once, and I will smile a silly
given me this day
