WINTER IN FIVE SENSES


Bare trees tear the sky
With startled fingers

Fan of blackbirds
Arch along
Topmost branches
A squirrel
Forgets to hibernate
Sits and dines brazenly
On tulip bulbs
From our terracotta pots

Snowdrops point
Their nose out of the earth
Scenting Spring
I’ll leave them all
Go indoors by the warm fire
Cosy hearing
The cold drip of rain
Gather
And run down the drain

AERONWY THOMAS
