Cold winters dawn

Caught by surprise

Was expecting more

Waiting for sunrise

Chilled to the bone

Caught of guard

To warm the bones

Now will be hard

Cold winters dawn

Emphasises my fragility

Making me wish of

Other things to be

The sheep or the lamb

With woolly warm fleece

The bear in the cave

That slumbers in peace

Cold winters dawn

Making me wish for


Summer days and what

Spring has in store

The thawing and planting

Of the new year’s grape


Of if only nature cared

For this body of mine

Cold winters dawn
