On This Night

On This Night

On this night, a night when darkness didn't arrive so much as vanquish the day
A frigid wind languishes among the eves
Lamenting in sorrow and seeking entrance
to house itself in bones marrow as I lie
A cold to lay the soul barren,as barren
as the winter trees outside
Stark in naked exposure
Vulnerable and waiting
Awaiting the rebirth of springs arrival
and the warm light of day
Bringing life to the land once more
