I've always felt that "wintry mix" sounded like some sort of snack food--maybe Chex Mix with cinnamon--rather than nasty weather.
This is blues by accident. I started with the melody and the blues progression just fit right in. Too late to argue with it. Song #14--hallelujah!
Wintry mix sounds like a cool playlist
Wintry mix: the latest hot shade of gray
Wintry mix: a coffee and chocolate blend
Wintry mix: a dance on Valentine’s Day
But wintry mix is weather foul
Sleet, snow, freezing rain,
Ice pellets, winds that howl.
Wintry mix cancels the hint of spring
Wintry mix glazes the power line
Wintry mix sleets on the crocuses
Wintry mix messes with my mind
Wintry mix: a cheerful sound
Hope it doesn’t stick around
Storms by other names would feel as raw
Winter, winter, winter go away
Time to let the seasons change
I’ve had enough of wintry mix
Bring on the mosquitoes and ticks.
