It'll be a hard winter: acorns in millions
Believed by farmers in my village blindly.
Does one really care about their opinions
Or prepare for consequences resignedly?
Fuel for heating, wood for the open fire
Ample food for my precious outdoor birds
Will the weather gods with others conspire
And make impossible to describe it with words?
Will the waterworks be frozen coming winter?
Must I be housebound for three weeks again?
Shoveling snow day in day out in cold and bitter?
Is this going to be another winter of Ardennes?
