A writing assignment for English 226
|Author's Note: This is my first attempt to write poetry. This is a required assignment for my current college course. Reviews are welcome, but please do not be harsh, I have never wrote poetry before!
The cerulean blanket overhead teases
me with an assurance of warmth.
The sly glint of the amber eye above
lends no comfort to my frozen skin.
A brusque bluster pushes against me,
chilling, stinging, nipping the tender
parts of me that can feel the winter’s trick.
The crisp quip of tawny bermuda under
my boot goads me to walk faster.
I am close to true warmth, nestled behind
plaster and windows, the spirit in the
hearth a more attainable thawing than
the mockery of fire up high.
A quick dash inside,
an indiscriminate toss of wrappings.
The blaze greets me with its coveted arms.
At last, I can feel the cordiality I crave.
