Winter Is Calling

a poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen, Denmark

Winter is moving,
coming to claim
her space in open fields,
roof tops and traffic jams.

She comes winking,
proclaiming her time
and calling people to
feel her cold hands
and chilly warmth.

Now is time to open
the old wardrobes.
Take out the hats, gloves,
and other winter clothes.

Prepare them as winter
spreads her cape to
wherever she passes by
And smile as winter winks
at you with her generous hand.
