Cold Moons Of Winter

Rating: 5.0
(The moons of December, January
and February were once known by our
forebears respectively as Long Night or
Cold Moon, Wolf or Storm Moon, and Snow Moon)

Cold moons of winter
The wolf and the storm
Ice crystals splinter
The long night is born
Grey shadows lope
Over the snow

And what poetic incantation, Peter! We are bewitched. I found myself reading it again and again, aloud. This is going to be my lullaby. Ten and a favourite. Susie.

Above all I like the poem's hopeful finish. Cracking write, Peter. And in answer to your question on 'Kiss My...', about 2 hours in the making altogether with a lot of chopping and changing. Warm regards and a score of 10 from Gina.
