The Life and Inspiring Poetry of a Woman from Kansas.

Velma Cochren Priest Terry, daughter, wife, mother, and grandmother (1915-1999).



March 3, 1983

Winter is a lovely time, as she makes her curtsy to fall;
Every season has a place, but winter is best of all.
Watch the little snowflakes playing tag in the air;
Each one a little diamond as it dances everywhere.

Gazing out across the mountains at the scenes below,
enjoying the trees and shrubs nestled in their coats of snow.
Nature with her frosted brush hovering over the Earth below,
Knew just what would touch the heart – like an arrow from its bow.

As the fall, so is the winter; it too will have to go -
To make a place for spring with all its melting snow.
Nothing, though, can take the place of that winter wonderland.
Everything has a time according to Nature’s plan.
