Chilly Rings

The paucity of warmth is palpable, 

I feel it in fingers raw and red, 

and the wind to coolly cinch my neck, 

and snowflakes sweetly kiss my head. 


 It\'s a kind winter, with high gray clouds 

thousands of fathoms above- 

in a sea of sky that\'s raining down 

the coldest breed of crystal. 


In a way, we\'ll all be rich 

with wintry diamonds on chilly rings 

I feel my fingers raw and red, 

all the gifts that winter brings.
