Ode to the Winter

A Poem by Louis McKraker



It is in this kind of weather

You grab life by the feather--

Not by the horn


--you’ll get tattered and torn,

and become worn

like old garments of leather--


And if you hold on tight,

And if it takes flight;

You’ll have something you can use

Every time you write.

I love the playful word crafting of this message! I love the way you play with word sounds & a classic cliché, adding a twist to pump it up a bit. Most of all, I love the way this morphs from winter into writing, a seamless journey (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
