Hard Frost Warning
By Mary T. Hoffman

The weather forecast warns “hard frost”
While chilly gusts of wind are heard
As autumn leaves are blown and tossed
And nowhere do I see a bird.

Many flock to warmer climes,
But others choose to stay right here.
They seem to hope that wintertime’s
A little milder for this year.
