WINTERS PROMISE

By

Erik Estabrook

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.
