" Winter Nights "

Winter Nights

I miss the trill of singing birds,

Cicadas in the grass,

The wind that whistles past me now,

Feels like a northern blast.

I rise me up to blackened skies,

Arrive at work 'fore day.

Then as I travel home again,

The sun has slipped away.

These winter nights so long and cold,

Leave me with icy toes.

I need the spring to come again,

Release me, winter's woes.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I don't think I've ever appreciated winter.  Ever.

This is lovely. I would hibernate until Spring if I could.

As usual, very nice, and well said. I remember days when I'd do the same.....arrive in the dark....leave in the dark. Short days, cold days, only thing they are good for is making us appreciate the better days.
