Cold Spirit

Cold Spirit

When winter Paley promenades,
And softly settles blankets white.
Then with wailing
Lamenting winds,
Glides in gleaming might.
Shimmering, dances with the light.
The sun in reverence taking leave.
Turns his friendly face another way.
Stands afar at winter’s solstice,
Lonely,
Glinting,
Gliding.
Winter’s cool crisp fingers fondling earth,
In lingering love.
Cradling,
Crafting,
Caressing.
Her majesty enthroned,
Sitting,
Standing
Sliding,
Undisputed queen.
Ebbing,
Fading,
Fearing spring,
Dreading dying.
Capitulates,
Complying,
Dispirited,
Lay her scepter down.
