Winter Chill

A ride down dark December streets,
All white and thick with snowy drifts,
And for a passing moment all the world
Is still beneath deep Winter’s icy shroud

And in the calm where my soul finds repose,
I feel a mix of longing and of dread,
Half-wishing to be covered and forgot,
And fade away below the frigid sky

I hear her whisper darkly in the night,
Inviting me to lie forever there,
Upon her frozen bed embalmed in white,
So softly wrapped in cold and icy sheets

But soon I see her voice is just the wind,
And her caress is but the falling snow,
As I begin to head for heat and home,
And shiver on the way to warm my bones.
