Poet’s Corner

“Cold”

Posted: Thursday, April 26, 2007

Coming down from the arctic hold

Cruising southward with no sound

Creeping, seeping, steeping cold

Crawling down through the ground.

Crisping leaves and lakes in a flash

Crashing, crushing with frothing lash

Choking and cheating the sun’s hot wrath

Challenging fires within its path.

Soothing but freezing summer’s heat

Shaking teeth and numbing feet.

Shifting rain and fog to sleet

Silently marching without a beat.

Skirting with flirting frontal lance

Slacking at solstice advance

Seceding to move south again

Stalling seasons to winter’s end.
