Please Knock, It’s Cold!

(C) 2014 by Howard Dart Humeston

Our door, which is usually open wide

to greet both you and the Florida tropical breeze

is closed today so please knock.

It’s cold!

We are not being rude nor pretentious

we are the same friendly people you know.

Somehow the temperature has dropped to

the fifties! And this Florida!

Knock, we will open the door for you.

It’s cold!
