introducing: winter

Dear Ari:
You're a southern-born girl
and though this is your second winter,
you're only now getting a taste of it

because you're no longer so tiny
because snow has fallen generously 
in your part of the country.
How do you like it?
You seem to be taking it in stride

just as you do
most everything else in life.
Well, good for you, adventurous girl!
And thank your mommy and daddy
who fed and changed you,
bundled you up,
fashioned a makeshift sled
and took you out into the white, cold day
so you could taste and feel ...

love you forever, Baba
