The Winters are so short

The Winters are so short
I’m hardly justified
In sending all the Birds away
And moving into Pod

Myself for scarcely settled
The Phoebes have begun
And then it’s time to strike my Tent
And open House again

It’s mostly, interruptions
My Summer is despoiled
Because there was a Winter once
And al the Cattle starved

And so there was a Deluge
And swept the World away
But Ararat’s a Legend now
And no one credits Noah
