Widow Christmas - Get Low

Began in September
(Watching it grow)

A smoldering ember
(Black-orange glow)

October, November
(Can’t let them know)

Half past thru December
(Hope it won’t show)

Don’t think I remember
(Feeling so low)

Love the concise story with gradual progression, from the onset to final low. Glad that there was acknowledgement in the end after initial denial. A class of its own in economy of words. Congrats, Tim!
