Then would wake up with a good cup of coffee
while watching the sun rise.
Later, one would go outside well wrapped up,
To get to work
saying hello to friends in no apparent hurry.
One would return at nightfall,
to cook (slowly) a pot-au-feu with winter vegetables
Sometimes would go out for a drink (or two)
And no one knows quite how,
but spring would arise one morning
as a splash.
