Wonders of winter

Wonders of winter

Everyone misses the sun as it sets,
Nights arrival seems pretty fast,
Woolen shawls and sweaters are all out,
People hug each other to spread warmth,
Concern about oily foods, who has got ?
Streets are empty at eight, to hibernate,
Not a single dog to bark at stranger,
Such are the wonders of the winter.

Your words make us feel the cooler nights and shorter days. Winter will be upon us here rather soon. Autumn is a colorful prelude of what waits for us in the cold and snow-filled days ahead. I enjoyed this poem very much.

It's autumn here, but it won't be long before winter. I love the lines about shawls and sweaters and people hugging each other to spread warmth. They create the image of a cold environment very well.
