Winter Solstice Snowshoe Hike with Seniors Outdoors
by Kate Martin

'Twas the first day of winter, with fresh fallen snow
All the seniors were packed up and ready to go

Our leader, John Martin, as usual was there
We all said "we'll follow you, just tell us where"

With the strongest out front, trail breakers we hail
The rest of us followed on a firmly packed trail

The sunlight did sparkle on the snow like a diamond
as up the steep trail all the seniors were climbin'

We are grateful and happy and all pretty tough
And we know, 'cause we live here, we're lucky enough
