Winter Time...Cozy Up with Poetry!
December 09, 2012
It’s that time again, where everything outside is bare and everything inside is warm and cozy! So many of us don’t really take a liking to the cold weather, but hey, it’s the cycle of life. We have to have the seasons. Below is a poem I wrote many years ago when I lived on a farm and was able, on this particular day, to kick back and take in the beauty of the cold, crisp pond. Try to take a deep breath, a long walk, and reflect what a blessing it is to be alive and able to experience four seasons.
As I look beyond,
The glistening field,
At the crisp, white pond.
The geese take rest,
As they settle below,
The island of trees,
Her shield of snow.
Water ripples become so still,
As it begins to freeze.
It will soon be ice,
Unmovable by the breeze
For every season holds her beauty,
For this I often say,
But today she’s so peacefully still
On this cold, crisp, winter day.
