The Shortest Day

It’s hard to understand;

From now on days expand.

The blue sky is set fair;

Leaves crunch in bracing air.

Though calm before a storm

Will flatter to deceive,

We fleetingly believe

That this is the new norm.

I loved the line
Leaves crunch in the bracing air
and the reference to new norms.
Poetic and clever, Stephen. Merry Christmas. John
