As Cold Winds Blow

As cold winds blow this time of year,
the limbs are bare, the winter’s here;
a frigid frost hangs in the air.
With season’s change we’re well aware
that endless nights will soon appear.

We wrap ourselves to hide the fear
brought on by darkness ever near,
and hibernate within our lair…
          as cold winds blow.

We dream of azure skies so clear;
the summer sun we so revere;
alas, ‘tis gone this weather fair.
We curse the darkness with a swear…
despising winter that we jeer…
          as cold winds blow.

    It is that time of year, for lingering in warm thoughts. Drinking hot chocolate with tiny clouds. :) Each season wraps so beautifully around the next. Your words capture the feeling of Winter. Nicely done my friend. ~ Brandy
