The Entrenchment

Polar breath so frigid and unforgiving
With razor claws entrenchment digging
Down into the tundra in the cold  cold night
Releasing autumn s hold into the early light
Digs into the heart of winter and settles in
Making a stand before the thaws begin
Old man winter with your victorious chants
Your haughty smiles and your superior stance
Have mercy upon we who battle the deep frost
Who run to warmer places then become lost
We huddle together at an open hearth in flame
The only fruit of winter to relieve the pain
Old man winter with your
Temporary entrenchment
Come springtime
Twill be time to go
Too bad for you
