ah today, one could dream of summer

with sun’s warmth upon the face

blazing blue sky to cheer the heart

one could dream of spring

as long absent birds sing again

and grass pokes triumphant through the snow

 

on today, one cannot dream of winter

that is one to be endured

as the body beneath the zipped up coat

seeks a more pervasive warmth
