White wool in the sky,
Why does winter woe always tempt to purge a valentine?
The sky no longer speaks in blue cascades,
It speaks now in tones of courage and strength,
As chicks break through their white shells,
I think of silver bells, and Christmas away from huddled displays
and landscapes of grey
Winters promise has been a long-taught one,
Of forgiveness, atonement, and the son rising up,
Every doe looks better around white, and cold toes/feet
don't stamp out the delight,
Christmas brings a golden glow,
One that's shown with snow blushes,
All the lights, all the winter home touches,
Winters promise is a spring hearts percussion.
