Beautiful Winter

My heart is overflowing

With warmth;

The rest of me is turning

To ice

/

I walked into the ocean

Of snow

Which in bright moonlight glowed

Like a smile

/

A blizzard danced with me and laughed

Like a friend

And icy lakes embraced me kindly

Until

/

It was naught but their cold

I could feel

While my heart was over flowing

With warmth

/

I have loved my endless winter

To death;

I would keep on but my heart’s

Getting cold
