My Journey

From mind to paper and back again.

The cold bites like a lion

Sharp and to the point

The ice freezes and fingers chap

Turning red on the front and the back

 

Rain turns to ice, sleet or snow

The roads blocked off where you want to go

The gritters are working night and day

For some extra cash in this months pay

 

People are sullen, cold or wet

Thick coats don’t help the cold is a net

Catching you then keeping you in its grasp

The direct debits changed and the account’s lapsed

 

Hat, scarves and gloves are today’s new order

Plain, colourful, bright or even just a border

The warmth seeps out quietly

Leaving alone and cold, just rightly.
