The piercing chill I feel poem

The Piercing Chill I Feel

In twilight's hush, beneath a sky so clear,
A whispering breeze, the night's breath, I feel,
Its icy fingers, through the silence, steal,
The piercing chill, a ghostly touch, austere.

Moon's silver light on frosted ground does kneel,
As shadows dance, in winter's strict appeal,
The barren trees, like sentinels, reveal
A world asleep, in cold's unyielding seal.

Yet in this chill, a warmth begins to rise,
From memories of sun on summer days,
Of golden fields, under azure skies,
Where laughter echoed in the heat's soft haze.

So in this cold, I find a strange embrace,
A contrast stark, yet filled with grace.
A sense of warmth and nostalgia, contrasting sharply with the chilly winter scene
A sense of warmth and nostalgia, contrasting sharply with the chilly winter scene
