In The Chill Of The Midnight Air

The icy chill of the midnight air
The cold wind blowing turns white my hair
From snow like crystals falling so bright
As I walk on my own in the chill of the night.

Its bitterly cold and my hands have turned blue
I'm so weak and so tired I'm not sure what to do
The temperature is falling I can't see a thing
The snow in my eyes is beginning to sting.

Uncontrollably I shiver as the cold rushes in
Arrows of ice penetrate all my skin
The cold and the pain it's too much to bear
As I walk in the chill of the midnight air.

Entered into Constance La France contest Let It Snow

    Leon, this poem is so relevant with the Big Chill in Britain I woke up two mornings ago, out of my warm, cosy bed, I couldn't help but think about the homeless and wondered how they are coping with The Big Freeze. Your poem stirs up a prayer within my heart and soul for God's mercy and help to reach them this season, and beyond. Thank you.
