When Winter Goes

Written by: Cynthia Alvez

Winter's bridal veil of white
Stubbornly persist.
Snow blossoms linger sadly,
Heads drooping.
The sun in glowing splendor,
Laughs at winter's folly;
Spills her warmth to set aside
Winter's chill, whose frozen tears
Course slowly down
My windowpane.
I press my nose
Against the mixture
Of cold and sunbeams.
It's the changing of the guard;
I watch winter go.
