Silent Solace

Embracing the Cold Night

Silent Solace

In the hush of the cold, winter's breath,

When the moon casts its silver sheath,

The world seems to pause, in a quiet repose,

As frost paints its delicate prose.

The stars twinkle bright in the velvet sky,

While the trees stand still, their branches high,

Wrapped in a blanket of shimmering white,

Underneath the veil of the silent night.

Each snowflake falls with a gentle grace,

Filling the air with an icy embrace,

The chill seeps deep into the bones,

Yet, in this stillness, a solace is sown.

Footsteps echo softly on the ground,

As wanderers tread without a sound,

Their breath a mist in the frigid air,

A testament to the cold night's flair.

But amidst the frost, there's a warmth that gleams,

In the hearths of homes, in the fire's beams,

Where loved ones gather, hearts entwined,

Finding comfort in each other's kind.

And though the night may seem so bleak,

It holds a beauty, a mystique,

For in its depths, there lies a charm,

A silent magic, a soothing balm.

So let the cold night wrap you tight,

As stars above cast their soft light,

For in this stillness, you'll find your way,

Through the darkness, to the break of day.
