Waiting on Winter's End

Written by: Tirzah Conway

The glacial wind steals our breath,
Freezing rain is falling down;
Silence covers our sleeping town,
As outside it is cold as death;

We huddle closer, sharing our heat,
Breath fogging in the bitter air;
Icicles form on the sweaters we wear,
As the freezing rain turns into sleet;

Refusing to give way to Spring,
Winter sinks her teeth in;
The air outside is cold and thin,
We dream of what the new season will bring.
