Sonneted Christmas Copyright Â© Jenny Chantler 2009
We're raised to think that this should all be joy.
Twelve days of laughter rushing through the door,
Not threading up the chimney like a boy
WINTER KING Copyright 2009 Kaaren Whitney
Winter, with its longest breath of exhalation,
creeps under the hoar frost white-netting earthʼs surface,
a protective cover for the One-in-deep-sleep.
