Do you ever feel tired and down? You think the morning after is bad? Imagine the season after! Sometimes you just need a pick-me-up. Spring is coming but there is no spring left in this fellow's feet. Walking in the warmer weather was like a breath of fresh air - he needs more than a breath of air in him to revive.
A remnant of another season, ready to be put away, but hanging on until all the snow is gone. I wonder if he'll be back next winter.
