To the Woman in Blue at the Grocery Store in February

To guard your ears from winter's chill,
a furry hat you've chosen.
Your gloves will warm your fingers as
they pick up food that's frozen.
Your boots should keep your ankles safe
from cold and wet and harm.
But your strapless dress is slipping.
What will keep your shoulders warm?


  1. I'm sorry I just can't stop laughing. My imagination is running wild as I get an image of the Woman in Blue.

  2. I am laughing also as her strapless dress is fashioned out of an electric blanket and she is tethered by an extension cord! hahah

  3. Sounds like she forgot to bring her winter jacket....:-)...or wear her winter dress for that matter....:-)
