Icy sidewalks and frozen roads 
Crisp winter air 
A peaceful sleep
The wind whispers thoughts of spring 
Soon forgotten with icy shivers 
Hibernation now 

We awake to find a peaceful city 
Industry forgets itself 
Men at work adhere to silence 
Ice lays claim
Our place in the world is frozen 

Animals come out to eat 
Briefly seen by scarce rays of sunshine 
Darkness shrouds the short and bitter days 
Cloudy skies and rosy cheeks 
Lulling moments that are necessary
Giving contrast to a beautiful spring 
Coming closer everyday
