Given it's January and many of us are looking to make personal adjustments, I thought this might make a fitting offering for the quote of the day.

I like this feature and hope folks will like my little poem here that is a kind of "quote" on the winter and age.  The company name is mine below so I own the copyright and I print it here with permission:

 

Chasing Me Back Up the Stairs by Lawrence Norris

 

Deer are good companions during cold winter

along with my little dog that barks at them.

When inside, her barking scares them away

but outside they see her and are slow to move.

 

But deer aren’t always patient with little dogs

when busy finding food among the odd growth.

One day, annoyed at my barking little dog,

a doe came forward and stomped on her back.

 

My dog ran back to the house anxious to enter

and bolted up the stairs into the closet

embarrassed by her lack of courage,

hurt by the encounter that surprised her.

 

For weeks she could not climb the stairs

and each day I lifted her into my arms

and carried her like a little baby outside

so she could go on her excursions.

 

Finally, she recovered from the injuries

and went in back and looked for new signs

of deer that might be patient one day

and annoyed at little dogs the next.

 

I remember my own barking days

when I stood up tall to trouble

and dared the beasts to come

so I could chase them all away.

 

But now I fall prey to bigger things

that are not so scared of old men

and want to show me their displeasure

by chasing me back up the stairs.
