An Original Poem by Ms. Faith

Greetings My Witchy Readers, 

Tonight, for a bit of a change of pace I have composed a poem, which compiles my feelings about this time of the year and that which I find the most important. I hope you like it. Warm Winter Blessings to you and yours, Ms. Faith 

Winter Shadows

Winter shadows stretch
Across the frosty expanse
An’ chill touches the skin
Ev’n seen from inside with a glance
Makes one happy to be within

This time o’ year
With every turn of the wheel
Comes ‘round yet again
As if caused to reveal  
As if it .  .  . suspends

To look around
We create our hive
An eternal summer
That surrounds our life
Our personal transformer

Crystalline silence, nary a noise
The warmth of family, people an’ friends
Much more than things, gold or toys
These are what we’ve come to depend
These that bring us heartfelt joys
Without our hive, our eternal summer
Our lives would be barren,
A lone, lonely mummer
A winter landscape
A life without summer
A life to forsake
A forsaken mourner

Winter shadows stretch
Their length shortens daily
The light starts to return
Our bargain with the earth grows faintly
The Wheel continues to turn
We live our eternal summer gently
