Is fraught with grey skies… and money gets spent!
The lights are on scaffold and song fills the air
Groupons a-plenty and devil-may-care
The way-of-the-world and Portland’s delight
Is the bane of onlookers preferring a fight
For Oswego and Portland and Bridgeport and Yon
Are prepared for the winter and the show it puts on
The grey skies don’t daunt and the season invigorates
Even home-buyers are dealing to celebrate
The gloom you’d expect and accompanying sadness
Are not to be found, but instead settle gladness!
For Oregon is nothing if not Beauty and Bliss
Even in winter it’s just no better than this.
