hoar frost on little cherries

A poem from today's Grand Forks Herald:

Its winter in North Dakota

            and the gentle breezes blow

Seventy miles and hour

            at thirty-five below

Oh, how I love North Dakota

            when the snow’s up to your butt

You take a breath of winter

            and your nose gets frozen shut

Yet the weather here is wonderful

            so I guess I’ll hang around

I could never leave North Dakota.

            I’m frozen to the ground.
