I Don't Live In North Dakota

The white foam on the ocean’s crest

A grey and dreary day in paradise

I find myself cooking that darn turkey sausage

To feed my hungry son


Looking out the window as I cook

Seeing the steely grey of the ocean

Do I want my morning swim?

So cold and uninviting


Yet the beach has tourists today

Frolicking in the surf

I guess it is all in the perception

And yes, I must remember I don’t live in North Dakota

Yes I know - things could be worse. Thank you for reminding me flour

You are a very lucky woman. You live in paradise!

oops - I remember that there are people in much colder places than I am.
