Cold

Cold

A Poem

“broken snow flakes on water” by Bryan Rodriguez on Unsplash

It’s getting colder now,
The wind blows chill,
Shivering in scarf and gloves,
While burnished leaves dance the path,
Or crumble under foot.
Nights grow longer,
Days are shorter,
Darkness comes quicker,
And cold makes it bitter.
It’s night once more,
The lights go on,
Slippers; PJ’s; and dressing gowns.
Under a blanket,
With hot chocolate in hand,
And outside the land,
Goes colder,
Still.
