    Default Maine Poem

    Too cute not to post

    ****************************************

    MAINE POEM

    It's winter in MAINE

    And the gentle breezes blow

    Seventy miles an hour

    At twenty-five below.

    Oh, how I love MAINE
    when the snow's up to your butt
    You take a breath of winter
    And your nose gets frozen shut.

    Yes, the weather here is wonderful
    So I guess I'll hang around
    I could never leave MAINE
    'Cause I'm frozen to the ground!!

    This is funnnnny! Did you write it? I would love to have someone read it out loud on Saturday so I could record it and put it in the next podcast! Any volunteers?

    I didn't write it ... It was sent to me in an email .... so I guess author is unknown?

    Are you going to be in Winslow on Saturday? Or if not, who do you think should read it?

    Thats a no-brainer...I think Hiram or Pedalchick or
    Cape Ann Carol should recite the poem....but only after they inhale some helium. LoL

    I sent this to a couple of people, and they all asked who wrote it. so I started Googling...

    I found it here, as a "Wisconsin Poem" - with no attribution.

    And here, again, "author unknown".

    How about "Winter in Canada"?

    "Winter in New England"?

    Sheesh!

    (Never could find an attribution...)

    NO WAY!! Helium is for the summer time, the good Doctor is for the winter time! He should be the one to aid in the reciting of it...

    Thanks for reminding me.
    Why not live life like it is your last day....instead of pretending to be a member of the Peter Pan Club and believing you will be around forever.

    No i'm not going to be at the event I have an exposition show to be at this weekend for my second job...

    Like I said it was just forwarded to me in an email so it doesn't matter who reads it and yes i'm sure it could be adapted to meet half a dozen states at this current time from Maine to Michigan and Chicago to Wisconsin
