The Promise II

by Jem Croucher

Outside the weather
reminds me again
that winter’s still here
with the wind and the rain
It’s blowing so hard
with a howl and a moan
from the cold of the north
where it’s festered and grown

Hibernation

by Jem Croucher

Most times on these cold winter days
you’ll find me snug inside
as chilliness and cold are things
I really can’t abide

Give me a pen and paper and
some music and you’ll see
that I’m content to stay indoors
and let the winter be

Winter Days

by Jem Croucher

These cold weekends of winter
keep us warm indoors most days
For it is frigid out there
devoid of warming rays
So we’d rather stay here snug and warm
with music, books and cheer
in our jumpers and our slippers
instead of winter gear

Pining for summer

by Jem Croucher

So, winter has me in its grip
and won’t let go right now
Her cold and icy fingers
spider-like across my brow
Shivering, I try to smile
and brave the worst of it
But winter’s not what I’m about
and never seems to fit

The Winter Word

by Jem Croucher

If I were a penguin
I’m sure I’d think it nice
when all was cold around me
and the ground was thick with ice

Home in the warm

by Jem Croucher

The air was so brittle
it brought a chill to the bone
So I wasn’t out long
before heading for home
Much better instead to
curl up with a book
with just the occasional
glance up for a look

Pea soup days

by Jem Croucher

lawress-hall-22-1-13-8

It really was a pea soup day
with freezing fog all ’round
reducing visibility
with ice upon the ground
Everywhere was coated white
not from snow but frost
and in the thick and murky fog
it was easy to get lost

Wintertime tangents

by Jem Croucher

11-march-2013

Off at a tangent
at this time of year
When it’s still wintertime
but the spring is quite near
It’s getting lighter each day
and at evening time too
And though trees are still bare
there are signs of the new

The winter bully

by Jem Croucher

lawress-hall-22-1-13-8

Breath escapes in tiny clouds
a whisper to the chill
as icy iron fingers grab
and hassle me at will
I’m minding my own business
A summer’s child adrift
Lost in this cold wilderness
and feeling somewhat miffed

as summer fades away
A chill with morning, ice on cars
and frost ‘most every day

Cold heralds signs of changing

Heading Home

by A. Marie

I take the square window and fold it up,
Tuck it inside the small cupboard upon my left lung
And under my heart. The road is a leviathan’s tail
Serpentine across the North American continent,

Brrrrr!

Of a morning when cold
In Sussex fields, green
my thoughts turn to summer
and warmer days seen
The sun might be shining
the sky might be blue
but it’s winter I’m feeling
in my bones through and through

Cold Christmas (Poem for Christmas – poetry challenge)

by Jem Croucher

Poem for Christmas – poetry challenge

 

Can I ask your indulgence for just a mo?
and to picture a scene with me?
It’s cold and it’s started snowing
And down there, close to the sea

There’s an empty bus shelter and an old cardboard box
And a man on a bench looking grim
Do you remember that day when you were shopping in town
Can you not remember him?

We dream of yellow

by Jem Croucher

 

In the gun-metal grey of midwinter
When cold grips vice-like
and, huddled in blankets
we stay cocooned in the warmth
of a fruitcake and hot tea afternoon
and dream of yellow

Thinking of summer when cold

by Jem Croucher

 

When it’s cold in the winter
I will look to the sun
and think back to the summer
as I have always done
Back to the days
of whimsy and breeze
when a cool wisp is welcome
rustling quiet through the leaves

The New Ice Age

We spun snow upon our feet
Immobile, white with frozen eyes
We breathe through cones
A smile, melting into our teeth

An Ode to Winter

The last dregs of winter are washed away
By a greening rainstorm – outlandish weather
To greet the spring.
