DMC: "Dear Cold" by Elizabeth Steinglass

Dear Cold,

It’s time for you to go—
you, and your friend, the snow.
We’re all sick to death
of your miserable breath.
So please, take your wind
                                       and blow!

The Daffodils

David Elliott has challenged us to write a letter poem this month.  I'm still looking for a couple more to feature as this week's daily ditties, so click HERE if you'd like details on how to participate.

RSVP with your poem to TodaysLittleDitty (at) gmail (dot) com, or use the contact form in the sidebar to the right. All contributions will be included in a wrap-up celebration this Friday, February 27th, and one lucky participant will win a personalized copy of David's delightful new collection of bird poetry:


  1. Thanks for starting off my day right, Liz! So funny. So true. Lesson learned: don't mess with daffodils in a huff!

  2. I'm with The Daffodils! Fun poem, thanks for sharing!

  3. I think the daffodils speak for all of us (two mornings of minus 20 degrees F is two too many.) Thanks for the smile, Liz.

  4. Daffodils know when enough is enough! Fabulous poem, Liz! =)

  5. Hahahahahahaha! I live in California and miss the winter. I'm an old Minnesota gal. But this poem just cracked me up. Thanks!

  6. Just perfect, Liz. We have more 'snow and blow' coming today & on the weekend too.

  7. HAHAHA! Liz, you cracked me up with this. Absolutely delightful, and the surprise of the daffodils at the end was just icing on the cake. LOVE!!!!

  8. Ha! Loved it! Glad the daffodils are so assertive. LOL.
