Warm smile

Coal-warmth creates ease from eve-gloom

drizzle-wind, frost and face-sting skin-pierce

driven-drizzle blast weather.

Thermal ticks of stove-warmtn metal-clicks

promise heat and unguent to pink-red


The afternoon's gone, the light's fading fast.

Damp wool and sodden fleece

tell of walking in the wilds.

The dog's mud-caked and happy to be free,

for shrieks of "not in here!" and frenzied ticking feet.

Warm mugs of chocolate

fire smiles and rosy cheeks.

God blesses us with winter,

even if the weather's not at all good.
