Poems About Having A Cold

A Cold’s Grip

In the grip of a cold, so fierce and so bold,
Where sneezes and coughs in the air are rolled.
Nose red as a rose, eyes watery and wide,
Seeking solace where warmth and comfort reside.

Under blankets, I hide, from the chill outside,
A cup of tea in hand, my steady guide.
Whispers of steam, in the quiet of the room,
A soft, gentle healer, dispelling gloom.
In the warmth of a blanket

The Cold’s Quiet Song

In the silence of a sneeze, the cold's quiet song,
A melody of sniffles, where tissues belong.
A chorus of coughs, in the night's long embrace,
With whispers of wind, a chilling trace.

Wrapped in the solace of a quilted cocoon,
I find in this fortress, a place to commune.
With honeyed tea's warmth, and a book in my grasp,
In the cold's gentle hold, I find a hand to clasp.
