January - cool this time of year
compared to cold years ago,
brisk as one breathes walking
to where they must go

Chills climb up the spine
intertwines with a warm soul,
shivers grasp the gentle frame
bringing discomfort is its goal

Steps now enter where lead to be
the shelter is safe from the chill,
longing for inner body warmth
let’s sip some tea so we shan’t be ill

Dream of Summer that comes one day
burns our skin thoughts of winter we say,
bring her back we happily cheer
January - we love you so dear
