Winter View - Poem by Barry Middleton

the cold wind begins to stir
and so we light the fire

the warbler dances on the lawn
the blackbird calls alarm

some may pray to hold it back
but still the winter comes

maple leaves hold tight to life
consoling a grieving tree

a man sits by his window ledge
to frame his winter view

    This is great. Living in L.A., this makes me feel like winter isn't just a fairy tale, that it actually may be real. I felt lke I was looking out Thoreau's porch. (Report) Reply
