from the threshing floor – 1

once, a cold that tore like nails:
twilight footsteps, frozen mud,

then, a string of lights in blue,
after cold, a hallway clatter,

hands by radiators warming,
television distant playing

special holidays in music,
laughter heard from faraway —

vane outside in hard wind spinning,
dinner never felt so good,

season of a new beginning,
glitter, garland, light and wood,

glitter, garland, light

and wood
