Sarah Craven

Rookie (Airedale, West Yorkshire)

Hallowed Winter Night

With every moment and every breath,
I held it close,
I dared not blink.
Breath froze beneath a starry mantle-
A starry mantle?
Or a cloudy dusting?
A kingdom too inconcievably small
Crunched beneath my buckled boots;
A thin sheen lay upon the road.
