Into Winter

A Poem By Raine // 12/28/2011

p { margin-bottom: 0.21cm; the temperance of fall

braces the world

for the roaring winter

when the winds howl

their cold songs to

the slumbering earth

beneath a crystal blanket

 

the night sky glitters

sharply in the frozen

breath of winter

while the trees shudder

with the weight of

her ice cold fingers

on their limbs

 

winter tumbles over the world

sometimes silent like

a shadow on the ground

sometimes wailing like

a desperate mother

she rules her domain of white

with a wild, fearless hand

I have hated the words and I have loved them, and I hope I have made them right. --The Book Thief

 Lovely...the whole thing

 Lovely...the whole thing sounds like a bitterly cold gust of wintry wind.
