‘A Winter Song’ by Sonam Dema

Give me a winter wrapped in pleasing fragility of intense cold,

Of unequivocal bliss of dancing snowflakes,

Melting into the flashing sunlight.

 

Give me a winter filled with chuckles of mischievous children,

Of outrageous snowball fights, red cheeks and snorts,

While their traceless footprints melt into the snow.

 

Give me a winter thawed by the burning hearth of my home,

Like a cat neatly dozes off to the sound of the boiling kettle,

Of the warmth of being surrounded by loved ones.
