And like a

Child awakening to

An overnight snowfall

The sight of

You makes me

Swoon with adventure

Sleds and snowballs

Mittens and cocoa

Of crackling fires

And smooth whiskey

While I watch

The fire’s fingers

Dance across cheekbones

And light up

The twinkling galaxies

In your eyes

You are my

Own late-night snowfall

Let us play

With gleeful abandon
