The Origin of Halloween

Dead of Winter Rich Koivisto

The Chill

It came upon a midnight clear.
It always comes this time of year...
...the chill.

It should bode warm hearth and food aplenty.
But strikes now of fear all mighty...
... the ill.

It sneaks beneath the sheets of fear.
Whispers softly to get an ear...
... the shrill.

It is the evil that we do.
We can't help it, through and through...
... the thrill.

It hides in places that we dread.
Does a number on our head...
... the bill.

It's due and come to pass.
"But why me?" Aghast, we ask...
... the kill.

It soon will be the dead of winter.
The dead long gone under...
... the chill.

Icy indeed. Matches the weather we are enduring up here in western Canada. -23% c. What's that is Fahrenheit? It'll freeze your nose off in about a half hour or less. Gotta go turn up the heat now.
Thanks J'nia

I got up and turned on the heat. This poem speaks as loudly as a windchill factor, taking the cold of an icy morning deep within to chill the marrow of the bones. I can feel winter waiting in the wings. She is hoping she will deliver a spectacular performance that will leave us with a lasting memory of her. I hope that she is bland and easy to digest.
Take care,

chills, ills, thrills and bills! So your getting them too. Speaking of "Chills" - 40's this morning here North of Ocala, FL and it isn't even Nov. 1 Seems way too early. It seems just weeks ago "we" were all concerned with hurricanes and heat! I don't know, I must be in a time-warp. I'll be by again soon...Take care always, michael

a unique combination of Halloween and the advent of winter I would not have thought to use -- but then, you are the creative man with the poetic pen -- as for the reality of winter's chill -- pass me the springtime if you please -- I need to defrost this freeze -- peace my friend -- JMW
