In the 40's

Coldness daunting
Weather cooled
Now winter's tools

Must be uncovered
Snow shovels, others
Gloves, scarves, caps
Lock de-icer, and that ...

Magic stick for lips chapped
Got to get some of that ...
Spray for defrosting glass
And a snowbrush and mask

Not to mention winter boots
To keep feet dry and warm
The most important loot ...
Minimizing frostbite's harm ...

For now it's in the 40's
And warm days, tho' courtly
Have distanced us apart
And now it's other sparks
