Winter Rain - Poem by Gert Strydom

She comes as an uninvited guest
when she’s expected less
and in times of the year’s
cold misery
she falls like icicles
out of a grey winter sky.

Her coming when the faded earth
is at its bare rest
with stripped trees
and yellowed grass
and bare patches
where flowers should be;

vexes me, as nothing rise when she falls
and just more chill follows her drops.
