Poetry for Winter

Posted on 06 December 2015 at 12:42pm

Winter heralds cold and sure,

snow capped, ice clad, we endure

sharp Atlantic gales.


Worked upon a violet night,

frost white webs sparkle bright

on the waking day.


Meandering smoke in sooty dogs,

the crack of axe on seasoned logs

to bring on flaming fire.


Scarlet robin, songs of faith,

cinnamon toast, fantastical wraith

tell of things to come.


A season of hope for all mankind,

Uplifted hearts and minds entwined

goodwill to all men.
