Warm Winter Brew

This is an easy thoughtful gift.  Just put this poem with a packet of apple cider and tie on a cinnamon stick with a piece of raffia.  Or use a packet of hot chocolate mix.  What could be easier!


Warm Winter Brew
2001 by Shirley Thomas

Brrrrr!  It's cold out today.
Inside I think we should stay.
So I'd like to share with you
my special warm winter brew. 

I filled it with the whistling of birds,
a bit of spring too pretty for words,
the sweetest scent of the first flowers
and the freshness of spring showers.

I packed it full of laughter so fine,
laced with lots of dazzling sunshine,
that I picked on a summer day
along with some fun and play.

I put in the sound of leaves rustling
and flying in the air all bustling.
And I put in just a little nip of wind
to give it a bit of a kick, my friend.

So sip and think of days to come.
They'll be filled with lots of fun...
Getting together with friends too,
and like this, warming thru and thru!
