Lady Winter

The temperature drops as night descends
cold’s breath bringing clouds of white
as Winter’s icy touch slowly extends
the land’s transformed to a ghostly sight

No sound dare breaks the stony silence
as if the world lies deep in sleep
nothing moves in Winter’s presence
as she walks around her keep

Her ephemeral grace glows like starlight
captured upon icicles’ crystal sheen
they glisten like diamonds in twilight
showing paths where Winter has been

And on her hair snowflakes alight
a translucent veil clouds her smile
shimmering beauty clothed in white
Winter is here to stay awhile
