The Cold

I've never shunned a winter day
And feel I never will
But last year when I rode a sleigh
There came a bitter chill

An apparition cold as hell
Crept quick into my vein
And just as I thought all was well
My freezing soul was slain

John, I love this clever little piece of art. I feel haunted by the cold now. And now inspired to begin a winter poem. Hmm...

Wow, really good. I wrote a winter poem some days ago, too. The winds of autumn bite me and reminded me of winter.

I liked your poem and the painting.
