DECEMBER

Your bitter comes before November goes,
a harbinger of the vignette to come.
Seeking refuge in the warm hearth of home,
away from the cold that freezes your toes,
sequestered from the Winter’s frigid snows.

Bittersweet, you watch the children at play,
in anticipation for Christmas Day.
But it is certain the curtain will call,
an abundance of Lake Effect snowfall.
Until the New Year comes, December stays.
