If you like

If you like,
Let’s stroll in the snow
The flakes flittering
In the moonlit glow

Then at home,
Out the window,
The ice glittering.
Ah, what a show!

If you like,
We’ll put on a fire.
Or, whatever’s
Your heart’s desire.

It’s so cold
Out of doors
Warm my hands
I’ll warm yours

In winters of past
I’ve thought this is our last
The years, they go fleeting
So short, and so fast.

Still together are we
The die has been cast.
The time since our meeting
So full, and so vast.

Now, we are cozy
Your cheeks are so rosy
The cat takes its place on your lap

Christmas card dreaming
Outside, all is gleaming.
Let us both have a lovely nap.

Lee Dunn View All

Lee Dunn has been writing since the age of 18, but found that work got in the way for the ensuing 48 years. In his home town of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, he reveled in his independence at an early age, and spent as much time as he could exploring the city’s Arts scene. He was introduced to poetry and prose by the works of two literary giants, namely J.R.R. Tolkien and J.W. Lennon and thence fell in love with the written word. His work includes poetry, short fiction, and personal essays, and ranges in theme from the surreal to the horrific, nostalgic, and themes on the human condition. He has been published on Spillwords.com, The Dark Poets Club, Journal of Undiscovered Poets, Crepe & Penn Literary magazine, and the Shelburne Free Press.
