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
