WINTER WINDS

October 16, 2018

Oh, the sorrow! Oh, the joy!

entangled in bare winter birch branches

 of crusted brown flakes, robbed of raiments and hue

kissed by shy snowflakes,

bold winter winds’ lips brushing the bark.

Beauty bestirs itself from the blue deeps

of a slumbering world’s closed eyelids,

sweven and magic twine calmly in wild love

as fade and grey footsteps of memory

shuffle soft against the snow,

queer and quiet as a shadow’s dance.

Lovelorn and lost, simper and sad

grey and white, ecstasy and blue

flit and flicker as the winter winds’ touch.

In the silent pre-dark of the cold’s coming,

Love awakens in memory, fantasy, and heartbeat

as the world drinks in lustily the purity of winter.

Oh, the sorrow! Oh, the joy!

blend and diffuse into a cold draught-

honey and spice, a rich wine of sweet pain,

memories return in garbs of maiden white beauty.
