Winter Falls

Winter Falls

Winter blew in early that year
The trees gave up their autumn finery
And settled into stark black and gray
Pointing bare angry fingers

Up to the frozen sky
A solitary bird stirred suddenly to flight
Caught daydreaming by surprise
In the sudden fall of harsh season

Taking to wing with a lonely cry
The wind whistled and howled calling out
Savage and lost searching for
An answer back

Rage intensifying with every breath
It cried in vain that day
To nobody there
Even the clouds found it too cold to stay
