"Love Does Not Freeze in Winter's Breeze," A New American Sonnet to Those with Christmas Blues and Year-end Woes

Updated on December 17, 2013

Love Does Not Freeze
in Winter's Breeze

A New American Sonnet to Those,
My Friends, with Christmas Blues
and Year-end Woes


When I peruse . . . my friends in throes

of Christmas blues . . . and year-end woes,

I under-stand . . . with sym-path-y,

stretch out my hand . . . cog-ni-zant-ly,

give them hugs grand-ly, and . . . I think, "Glad it's not me!"


This time of year . . . differs for me:

snow brings not fear, . . . but sets me free,

which I accept . . . re-luc-tant-ly

when I still want . . . to feel guilt-y,

because I don't, and won't, . . . I think, feel un-hap-py!


Good luck with your . . . dirty laundry;

I send mine out, . . . because it's free.

It matters not . . . if we agree:

love tatters not . . . when out to sea;

on that sweet plot-ted "knot," . . . I think, we both agree.


Thank goodness, dear, . . . love does not freeze . . . in Winter's breeze,

nor priced so dear . . . as other near . . . come-odd-it-teas.
