Winter Children

The children of winter

Are fiery despite the cold

And in the summer

Have the chills when lying in the sun

Only we appreciate the way the snow falls

And how late at night

It twinkles under the street light

Only we can understand how it feels to feel more powerful

And full of life when the wind is blowing and our hands our numb

We are special in our own way

Like a snowflake drifting from the Heavens

We are the rulers of everything that becomes frozen

And we harness the power of the night

Children of the Winter

Oversee the realm of snow

And call it their home

And when it melts away

Their hearts ache for another

Two hundred and sixty something days
