December Days

December Days

Cold as ice, the North Wind blows
Like a knife, cuts through the land
On the heights, there will be snows
Chills the dog walkers on the sands

Jack Frost drawing on window pane
Blades of grass are crisp and white
Weather today: hail, sleet and rain
A pale moon in a freezing night

Snug beside a fire, crackling, warm
Hail battering down upon the tiles
Best keep inside, outside the storm
North wind brings a time of trials

December came so cold this year
The leafless trees are so austere
