Cold Icicle cold The frigid cold of Mid-winter Biting winds That slice through Mid-February And cut through The viscera Leaving scars To heal next summer Warmed by the sun And cooled by the wind But for now The bone chilling Cold That freezes the senses As it freezes the lakes A single dimension In a forest of feelings Reduced by the thermostat Into one singular syllable Cold 2/2/19

Thanks for the kind words, Bruce.

I've perused some of your pieces as well, and I have noticed a well-written element within them - kind of like a refined technique that shows up in your work. As a whole, you write very well and it is great to see that put to good use.

Keep up the great work yourself Mr. Levine, the world always needs great poets.πŸ‘

Bruce, I've taken just a brief look at your website and it contains quite a body of work...

Amongst them all, I would most like to know your own favorites.

Thanks for posting the link,

Welcome to WOL, Mr. Levine. I'll try to catch up with some of your poetry here. That is an impressive BIO.

BTW, I would have got the G&S beat: the 'tra la la's' are a dead clue.
