The cold air bites my face as I step through
My door and out into the blank winter
All night long, frost settled in and wind blew
Like a hungry bear angry and bitter

A thick sheet covering the world in death
And leaving everything quiet and still
Stealing all the warmth from bodies and breath
Seeking to smoother and seeking to kill

Yet mountains look as though topped with sugar
Children playing, building snowmen, sledding
Not afraid of the low temperature
And others survive by hibernating

Know that winter never lasts forever
Bundle up and wait for warmer weather
