Character Structure - Poem by Shirley Alexander

In winter, bones of this land are laid bare,
exposed to drying winds and white blind of frost.
Cosmetic camouflages of kinder seasons are gone.
In winter, we see the strength of frameworks behind green.
So it becomes with us, when we reach our winter years.
