Fey: Winter’d Little Girl

by Alison McKenzie

If I told you
I was the coming winter snows,
Would you lie down in
The pristine drifts of my soul
Until the bitter winds
Drove you back to
The warmth of home’s hearth?

I am whispering
Through the fade of
Love’s question,
For I will eventually
Trickle away
While you endure
To face February
And the debut
Of a brand new spring.

Beautiful seasonal/spiritual composition/allegory, Ali.

Every line in this is so well thought out. "I am whispering Through the fade of Love’s question," my favorites this read through. Great flow and subtleties.

...there is no cold like cold wet windy cold. So cold it is hot to the touch. Fierce. Like you.
