Goodnight season

This is dedicated to “Goodnight Moon,” one of 1-year-old Jayden’s favorite books.

Goodnight, climbing season.
Goodnight snow.
Goodnight weather that makes the wind blow.
Goodnight frustration.
Goodnight forecasts.
Goodnight summer, which really didn’t last.
Goodnight granola bars.
Goodnight sunlight.
Hello time with the little guy day and night.
Goodnight equipment, stashed out of sight.
Goodnight ruined plans - I’ve got no more fight.
Hello long runs so I’ll be ready.
For some snowshoeing and skiing come January.

P.S. Hello poker, time to play
So my aces can get cracked another day

Don't know if its the same author, but my boy loved a book called Goodnight Gorilla.

Reading this, his little voice mimicking mine was crystal clear in my ear, especially the way he said gorilla like a question.
