Sonnet # 140 Winter Blues


Nights seem endless whilst winter reigns
How such a dreary season can carry on
Making droll dawn's rising sun
When nary a bird the morning greets in song
Far to soon daylight eventide concedes
Prompting stars eariler to display
Stellar specks of twinkling white
Just as their lunar cousin takes the stage
The cold is merciless, unforgiving
Street ice dodgey strolling makes
Curses bent on soupy puddles
Oft a wet shoe enunciates
Return sweet rain and with thy might
Relieve our suffering from dismal winter's blight

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
