Gaily screaming through the yard,
Children play and laugh.
Without a plan and not a care
Their tiny voices fill the air.
A season that once felt so dead, has come alive for me at last.
The wandering coldness left me, clinging to my dark past.
A gentle snowfall and a fire lit,
Together, now, I can see how well we fit.
Winter has changed seasons in itself, from a cruel mistress to lover.
Pandering sugar filled dreams and sticky fingers where aches in my heart once came and lingered.
The crinkle of ice beneath my boots reminds me to hold fast to my roots.
Don’t linger too long in that icy spot, for there the water is thin,
Come over here and hold my hand,
I’ll keep you always in my new Winter Land.
So tell me what Winter means to you now! Link up below!
