A Poem: Winter's Children


Winter’s children


Don’t look left or right
  Drive fast keep your face ahead
    Ignore the nearly dead
      Under formaldehyde light.
Bent and staining days perfect white.
Please, give of your daily bread,
  Encourage with a kind word said.
Even staining life’s delight
  You’ll help yourself as well as those
    Who dwell in cold free from cover,
      Sad and cringing, afraid to sleep,
        Public in their humbling throes.
Winter’s not the kindest partner
  Jealous in her frozen keep.
