Buses trudge through the snow
like children on sledges
while dogs dig their heels
when their owners stumble.
Newspapers blow in the wind
like the pipes of peace
and train guards look frozen
when asking people to step back.
Bins freeze up like Igloos
while Black bags are heavy as stone
and Christmas tree lights change
to Airport warning beacons.
The breeze starts as your friend
but then in seconds becomes your enemy
while Robins hide in Rabbit warrens
as Winter finally walks in tune.
