Winter

.
.
Bright winter light is dim
.
Small tasks become hard work
.
And memories paid in effort grim
.
Dare long for the  heat of sweaty July
.
That turgid lethargy thick movement
.
Blessed cooling rain a wish
Then too wish now winter’s test
.
Endure and endure
 .
To survive is to be yet blest
.
Too bold or hopeless plan
.
Think of Spring and growth
.
All winter tending care 
.
Spring’s fragile yearning germ
.
Remember heavy September indigo
.
And golden October sky
.
When this ancient no color cold
.
Was only anticipated Winter Rest
