As the snow hills gather we drag our numbing toes
behind, the man staggers, while the old wind blows
I can feel my hands turning cold and black with ice
resting even slightly, would bring a heavy price
And now the moon cracks a pocked open face
I will not fall behind, I will keep up my pace

Coming from a place with too much snow, I can really relate to this!! I'm shivering!
Excellent writing, again!!

Excellent! I know this one well! We just got over 12 inches of the stuff today. Brrrrrr!
Numbing toes and fingers, biting at your nose.  Described it well!

One way you can save your riches,
And the other will save your soul.

Hey James... some excellent lines in here... love the image at the beginning... "As the snow hills gather"... and the phrase "old wind blows", very nice. Best line, "And now the moon cracks a pocked open face". Enjoyed. As usual. Nice to see you again.
