A Wintery Day
It is winter yet I make a trip to the nearby park
The vast stretch of snow covers the land
I follow the icy path leaving a clear track
All around me the fresh snow had left no trace
Of any past wanderers who’d been at the park.
The freezing cold doesn’t freeze my resolve
To take a stroll along the snow covered land
The bright sky and the silvery snow ease my mind
The wind as it passes by leaves a sweet music
And the stillness of the air echoes with it.
I tread softly through the white slush
The warmth of my bare skin
Is erased by the mild touch of the breeze
That numbs me for a while
I perceive that it’s time to turn back.
My mind was warm and alive
With the lovely sights of winter
My spirit was uplifted by the spell of the season
And I strolled back to my abode
With a happy and contented sigh.
