"Lady Winter"

‘Lady winter’
came-a-calling
riding bare-back
through the air.
In a cape of
snowy white
she galloped
through the night,
to the twinkling stars
far beyond.

When the moon
no longer shone
her pearly eyes did cry,
round tears
of frosty ice.
Such porcelain skin
cracked harshly in the wind,
and she was blinded
by a blizzard,
of her own.

The mare,
it gently cantered
o’er seas and lands a-plenty.
’Til just a trickling trail
of snowflakes sparkled
in the morning sun.
The pure blanket
she had made
for a chilly wintry day,
was but the first
of more to come.

As everyone will know,
she likes to
come and go,
her regal duties
must she carry.
So, the next time
you do venture
in the wind, rain, ice or snow,
be kind to ‘Lady Winter’ -

‘Cos it’s no fault of her own!
