Littleton’s poem reminds us that winter is not forever Print E-mail

Writing poetry has always been one of Sabra Littleton’s passions. Sabra was 89 years old on January 11, 2014. She has always taken pleasure in the little things and spent many hours keeping journals of her life, her blessings (once she wrote a list of 80 things she was thankful for), and her poetry. Perhaps this poem she wrote in July of 1997 will help remind us that winter is not forever and warm summer days are soon to come.
