Frozen hopes

  
 A pale moon sets the scene
   As twilight comes to call
    The first snowflakes are seen
      as temperatures slowly fall
  Bringing  shivers to all

      The fireplace burns bright
     As Christmas carols play
    Bringing  cheer on a  wintry night
  The wind chill factor they say
  will make it feel like zero before day

 A bone chilling wind howls
  As my coffee mug steams
   In the frigid  night old man winter scowls
 As shivering hopes fall by the fireplace, agleam
Trying to attain a summer dream
                              ***

    Joseph, I'm not a fan of winter, and this poem expresses my longing. My cats, I think, believe they can find summer, if they just find the right door.
