Art by Meagan Dion

Flakes fall soundlessly

The world is silent now

Pine needle boughs are bending

Laden with heavy snow

Smokey coils looming over houses

You get the firewood

The wood stove has its supper

And I am making mine

Raindrops roll glittering

The sky is darker now

Bubbling coffee pot is brewing

Cuddling beneath a throw

Steaming coils looming over cups

You get the firewood

The fire's in its place

And I am making mine

Babes sleep heavily

The house is quiet now

Chests are rising and falling

They are stirring to and fro

Dreams coil looming over heads

You get the firewood

The hearth makes a glow

And they are making mine

Leaves fall gracefully

The branches are barer now

Sweet childhood laughter echos

Happy leaves made low

Windy coils looming over ground

You get the firewood

The campfire's heart ignites

And my family lights mine

About the Creator

Meagan Dion

My life is a little crazy. Four kids, homeschool, hotel clerk, write, create and coffee. Coffee is a verb. Do you coffee? I aspire to blow glass and finish / publish my novel. I would like to have an impact. Also, coffee.

    The repetition feels nice and drowsy. It really is evocative of nodding comfortably off to sleep by crackling, flickering firelight, as snow falls outside.
