This was the result of a challenge at Arcanum Cafe for use of specific words in a poem, in order given....

I WRITE TO SING OF THE GIFT OF YOUR LOVE

I write to sing
of the gift of your love.

Like a fist full of candy
you leave a sweet taste
in my mouth.

In the winter calm
of snowy silence,
your voice is as musical
as the distant sleigh bells.

With you here beside me
I can face the winter, fearless,
sinking my roots
deep in frozen ground.

Our joy is the offspring
of gentleness and caring,
your love settles around me
like snowflakes that lace my window.

I write to sing
of the gift of your love.
