Winter

 

but I was born for August

I protest

yet winter does not care

winter is not intimidated

by my warm wolly socks

Beth knit and gave to me

she knows I enjoy the cold

as only a summer lover would

winter shows no concern

for my fleecy leather gloves

Beth bought at a craft sale

to care for my frozen hands

winter needs no consolation

for these pleasant reminders

that despite my body's chill

my heart is loved, is warm

 


Winter
