Earth lays down her Mantle

Gripped within the jaws of bitter cold; 
Betwixt the Equinox of Winter and of Spring;
When Earth her mantle,
In frozen form lays down
And leaden skies move across eastern soil ;
The wind,afresh, torments
The slender trees;
The door it rattles
And the signal comes;
Steeled ,the weathervane turns anew;
Precariously, it points to unknown sights
The garden,hauntingly now is stilled;
The high banks,protection graciously afford;
The earth awaits the snow that still may come
Reminding that winter’s chains are nailed and riven.
