A dream of silver coins and gossamer
of frankincense and sacred myrrh
tugging, gently tugging at the coverlet
the draperies drawn,
the candles lit.

Winter's wizened face and beard sent packing
by the blazing willow log
a'crackling, gently crackling in the fireplace
the shivered wind
leads on apace

These dreams to warm us lingering like a balm,
and cider mulled with cardamom
bubbling, gently bubbling in a bowl
blots out the wind
and shuns the cold.

The best thing about winter is this: being snugly warm inside with a crackling fire. Wonderful poem! :aww:

Where I am from right now it is -40 degrees celcius with the wind chill, which is surprisingly -40 degrees fahrenheit!
