Love Me Winter

Stopping the driver at lights
I'm fishing around in my pocket for fives
With only the winter in mind

Standing up into the blustery night,
it's blackness and cold - unoccupied roads
I've exited miles before home

The clouds have a glow that an Inuk would know
I'm bracing for snow
Adjusting my wools till they're snug at my throat

I'll happily trek for an hour or so
And purposely slow, no matter how far
To spend such a night with the stars
