Wild weather whirling
And whining
Around this house
While outside
Doors bang mournfully
To and fro
Freak weather warnings abound
And the winter wind sighs
Round and round
While I, snug warmly
With cats and dog
For company
Care not, if rain
Or hail, or snow
Comes visiting our place
This little cottage
Sits safe and cheerful
In peace and grace
