Winter visitor

It*s time for Daylight Savings Time to take a vacation, like snowbirds, south.  The extra hour of light arrives Sunday morning.  I have made up the guest room with fresh sheets.

I am glad
For the extra hour of light.
She arrives
Sunday morning
A winter visitor
As warm-baked cinnamon rolls
Hot coffee
Cat rumbles solid
On the lap;
A winter visitor
Embraced at the door
Shown in
From the dark and cold
Coat hung in the closet
Boots by the door;
A winter visitor
Invited to stay
Til spring.
