The winter-time has now arrived

As the autumnal equinox jived
And now the days will lengthen
As weather changes the tension

And now focus will be on staying warm
Under extra throws and clothes we don
As chills creep in along our window-sills
And cold winds slow our walks to a standstill

As boots, gloves, scarves, sweaters and hats
Might lessen the bone-chills some, but that ...
Is a drop in the bucket compared to the slide
Some will feel as they come down from their high

- Tristram
