Winter Blues

It is a cold dull and dreary day
the sun alas hidden by clouds
to lighten my heart not a single ray
it feels like being wrapped in shrouds

The radio is playing the blues
which suits my mood just fine
I watch the fire as the pot stews 
maybe I will feel better after I dine

Closing the curtains against a day
that is best forgot. I head for bed
knowing a fresh dawn is on it's way
and the sun might paint the world red

    There is something comforting about sitting in a house with a warm bowl of soup when it is cold outside.

    that last line is awesome. To have the sun appear and chase those blues away. I love that image.

    Nice descriptiveness and accompanying rhyming in this piece. I feel a bit the same right now.

    hi Robert winter is fun at the start but soon dulls. The trick is to turn on a sun lamp and day dream of tropical shores ty for reading Shadow x smile hug
