Old English wintrig (see winter, -y1).
Bob's outlook was all wintry
Though the weather was quite warm.
The sidewalk might be snow free,
But Bob could show no charm.
The Christmas party gathered
To share a glass of cheer.
Bob showed up all lathered
Though not with froth of beer.
He shouted, ranted; blathering
To demand a change "right now!"
He sought a somber gathering.
No fun, no joy, no how.
The revel just continued,
Ignoring his frigid tone.
Reluctantly, Bob they snubbed
And let him mope alone.
Words are a game. Sometimes I play alone, but you are welcome to play, too.
