ABC poem: Winter Jacket

ABC Poem

Winter Jacket

Annually I go to the market,
Buying winter garments and such but
Coats are my bane I’m just never happy.
Dowdy things,  I dump them in  spring.
Ever and forever I want a fine coat…
Fluffy and airy and light.
Great gads…


Heavy garments are not for me.
Insistently I search in the shops for
jazzy and light jackets to wear…
Keep your old pea coats
Lodens and trench coats
May they never come near me at all!
Nope, I want a fluffy down Jacket,
Obviously just right for me!
Proud would I be, I’m sure,
Quite dashing, wrapped in a
Red colored down jacket.
Silly I know, my coloring’s all wrong.
Traditionally I should wear just light blue.
Understand me however…
Verily, blue is quite pretty but I’d like to brighten my life.
Wearing bright red, t’would be so welcome!
Xenia! Yes welcome t’would be!
Yearningly I’ll look for a bright red jacket…ah and with
Zigzagged blue stripes!
