When homes warm cocoon ensnares me inside?
The light, drawing my eyes towards the dawn
Reminds me the cold will not long abide.
As I exhale my breath enters the morning cold
And as a cloud appears before my sight,
Yet my breath, while seeming ever so bold,
Before a gentle breeze swiftly takes flight.
Gently rays of light expand and appear,
Touching the frozen night upon the ground.
Rising up, the sun warms all that is near,
Frees the world from the frost holding it bound.
As the night recedes from the warmth of day,
Memories of night-time's cold drifts away.
