Larry and the Frost

Early morning
Bright sun
Heavy frost
Coat and gloves
First time.
Seasons click,
Time moves on
And the world turns.
I call a friend
(Who’s like family)
In the hospital
For heart trouble.
He says he’s had
A setback
Felt better yesterday,
But should be fine.
We hope. We pray,
As the days march on.
He says his only real regret
At this turning point in life
Is that for the first time
Since the 1970s,
He missed watching
The Michigan football game
Last Saturday.
