Window Sill Winter

Frost bitten tree tops
but its cozy indoors
The hot chocolate never stops
as the au fait fire roars
This is the life for me tonight
reading a Christmas tale by fire light
The holiday is not here yet
but the winter season gets the mood set
Peering in from the window sill
is a cardinal seeking heat
The closer I get I can taste the chill
This weather can be so bittersweet
From where I stand I'm loving the view
but the heated room helps too
Luckily I taste the sweetness of the season
The feeling that assures winter has a reason
