Come, Crystal Ball I have stared long and true,
spending many, many hours mesmerized by you.
Searching for vague signs of a future to be read
in your crystal depths, was I mistaken instead?
If I stare long enough I see clouds unfurling
like tangled waves of time, inwardly swirling,
but wait, what’s this, a message through the curtain?
saying, ‘Shake this globe, and a Snowy Winter is certain’
So I did, …. and it’s all my fault…..
