winterpoem # 4

winterpoem # 4

on bitter nights when deep drifts
blocked our long country lane we  
hiked up left the car on the road   
snowpants boots our white breath  
searing our windpipes we followed  
daddy’s tracks as he pushed the way
to light and warmth I loved those treks
the sky its richest black and the stars!
the stars so bright so close you could
swipe down handfuls in your mittens
in your arms hug the frozen milky way
