Freezing air blows in my face,
I'm trapped in winter's cold embrace.
Icicles sparkle like glitter in the trees,
Such morbid beauty this season brings!
The trees are bare, no longer green,
Mother Nature's bitter scene.
Branches litter the frozen ground,
The hollow wind is winter's sound.
A sinister chill clutches my chest,
Unwilling to succumb to winter's arrest.
Snowflakes pierce the frosty air,
I shut the door in disgust and despair.
