A Winter Walk - Poem by Phil Soar

A winter walk after a heartfelt Christmas day
No clouds, Blue sky adorn the sights along the way
The distant traffic noise, unwelcome harmony
Nothing but the sound of birds accompany me
Two dogs enjoying smells and searching high and low
A fox, a hare, a pheasant passing to and fro
No place to hide, no place to go
Cold enough to glow your cheeks, or maybe snow
No other footprints trace our steps or follow on
Deep frost has cast those steps before in earthy brown
Where previous winds have split the pine trees to the ground
The sights and sounds of wintertime are all around.
