Winter Games


Mother Nature finally allowed
Old Man Winter to come and call.
Playing in it you may have vowed
But there’s not enough for even one snowball.

The secret is that it’s slippery
Under that one thin snowy layer.
Mother Nature is at her trickery;
Stay indoors to be a player.

Visit Dragon City or hit the Subway to surf,
For sure you’ll be stuck to indoor turf.
Or try your hand at Trivia Crack,
To remember, just give your head a smack.

With Pet Rescue and Clash of Clans,
You might lose track of the clock’s hands.
Working Criminal Case you’ll search for leads
Of who is doing the dastardly deeds.

You could try your luck at 8 Ball Pool,
Or soon become a Farm Heroes fool.
Join the millions with Candy Crush Soda
Or take the bait for Candy Crush Saga.

My choice is always Words With Friends,
I’m a novice to others online.
You can send me invites until day’s end;
I will not play any of the time.

The lure of snow is hard to deny,
So search is on for boots and gloves;
It may be only grasshopper’s-knee high
But any snow is hard not to love.

I wrote this for my column in The Prospect-News, the local weekly in Doniphan, MO.

About Teresa Pearson Lee

Retired after 33 years of teaching English and French (one year in private school in Memphis, TN and the rest in public school in Doniphan, MO. Enjoying new adventures - all those things I put off for lack of time, energy, now I can try them! Pottery, writing, traveling, camping, kayaking, dancing, listening to some of the best live music ever, and making lively new friendships. All christened with an appreciation for great red wine! Created and operated KC's on the Current, then sold it and managed it for new owners. You might still find me at the reservation desk when spring rolls around. Born and raised in St. Louis, MO near The Hill. Though a transplant to Southeast Missouri, still a city gal at the core with a deep love of the natural resources in these Ozark foothills. Currently I am a content coordinator for Poplar Bluff Living Magazine and a columnist/stringer for the local weekly The Prospect News. My rescue Siamese helps with most of the proofreading; he has a great ear. I relish the solitude easily had in the Mark Twain Forest but thoroughly enjoy lively outings for music, wine, conversation close to home or in my beloved hometown. Technology is my greatest challenge but so worth the shared connections. There may be a need for solitude but there is little loneliness.
