Cold feet poem

Cold Feet

Within winter's silent grasp,
Where quiet cloaks the land en masse,
A story unfolds on white-clad ground,
With cold feet, where secrets are found.

Beneath the gaze of the moon so clear,
Cold feet tread softly, gripped by fear,
Through whispering woods, they silently roam,
In search of the light of a long-lost home.

The wind sings a gentle, haunting tune,
As snowflakes twirl under the watchful moon,
In the deep stillness of the wintry night,
They dance with shadows, bathed in silver light.

Each step etches a path on the snowy floor,
A tale of longing, dreams, and lore,
Cold feet, in their quiet quest,
Seeking warmth, a place to rest.

With the dawn, comes the sun's gentle glow,
Melting the world of frost and snow,
Cold feet, at last, find their beat,
In the sun's embrace, warm and sweet.
