Doggerel: ‘Winter Stars’

by richardhutton

Stars dim,
And split,
And coldly splinter.

Winter.
Its snows are silence
Falling,
Faintly falling,
Falling faintly,
Softly cold –
It covers.
Gentle crashes,
Like kisses smothered.

The wild earth’s peace.
All movement,
All moments,
Frozen,
Beneath;
Eased,
Released
