Some Illusions

by beeseeker

Winter dark drops its

Sharp-sudden chill

Like a heavy, studded cape

Across field, path and copse.

Moonrise wind grips

Our bones with

White-wolf fangs.

Northern rain will mate

With less-than-zero air

This December night:

Snow’s gentle manacles

Are coming to restrain us all.

But I have seen

Faith, hope and trust

In the eyes Of Christmas youngsters –

From behind the Beard and fairy mask –

For the first time.

There are some illusions,

Perhaps,

That we should not

Rush to destroy.
