ANOTHER WINTER, a poem by Geoffrey -. Hoffman, UK
Nature Poems & Winter Poetry
Geoffrey -. Hoffman, UK
And now two seasons play at dice,And now grey winter’s iron handWith a twisting of the wristThrows the six that autumn missed,And takes the trophy of the land.Winter, if it had its way,Would win the universe at play,And build a prison out of ice.But underneath earth’s frozen rindThe tiny lives that will not dieSnuggle together to survive.A robin on a leafless treeFlutters and chatters cheerfully -A touch of red in a world of snow,With tiny, curious eyes aglow,Warm, undefeated, and alive.And as the robins, so live weThough under human roofs we lie,Safe from the white death in the sky.
