The Fifth Day of Poetry

Solstice

When winter comes

The fire grows warmer

The snow bells tingle

Frosting panes

When winter comes.



The fire grows warmer

Sun-god defeated

The slaving hearth beams

With new found surrender

The fire grows warmer.



The snow bells tingle

Around ruddy cheeked children

Cool beams beckon

The new born sun-child

The snow bells tingle



Frosting panes

Glistening, glistening

The fire grows warmer

The wind thunders freely

Frosting panes



When winter comes.

I also like the repetition in this, and its use in movement from one stanza to the next....
