Seasonal Change

She is in school all day now and
He is there two and a half hours a day
Three days a week
My birthday has past
Only one year left between me and forty
The cat is looking more bedraggled and skinnier than ever
As he enters his fifteenth year
Worn down by the love of a three year old
The air is really only colder at night
But the message has certainly been received and
While it might just be that I too am skinnier and
More bedraggled
Than ever
Due to the love of a six year old and
A three
Now almost four year old
I'm shivering
All day long but
Most especially for
Two hours each morning
Three days a week
