Warmth in Winter

Warmth in Winter

Ben Soule

Now has come hard winter,
With whip of wind and slash of snow
and the diamond-bright stars in the black ice of the heavens.
Just as we resist the season with shovel and scraper, wool and windbreaker,
we embrace it with sled and snowboard, cocoa and comforter.
Winter is here: let us find warmth in this time of being together.

Seen from above, a person's hands cradle a mug of cocoa. Also visible is their torso wrapped in a wool blanket.
