Winters Long Ago
written by: Ruth Owens
In winters long ago we played out in the snow.
Using plastic sledges cheap
Which sped us down the snow covered hill as if we’d taken flight.
I had no fear then of falling in the snow.
of damaging a hip or knee and ending up in A & E.
I slipped and fell three times one year but bounced up like a weeble.
But nowadays I feel more feeble.
When Ice and snow are on the ground.
Outside I am nowhere to be found
I am retired so can devote myself to writing.
