Monthly poem - January

Condensation in silvery drops
Behind the black matted trees

A carpet of frost on the roof
And the bird-bath has a plate of ice

White days lie ahead
And the white page

If the Thames would freeze over again
As it did in 1683

We might skate from Blackfriars to Hammersmith
Burn fires on the ice

Feel the forgiving flutter of snow
On our upturned faces
