Ode to the Cold
by Sloetoe, 12/12/00
Now I know just why I whine
when the temperature fails to climb
when the blowing winds freeze moving brine
(just why I whine...)
I whine to tap the energy
(primordial and hard to see)
that sits inside my chest too deep
for winter winds to freeze --
I whine to sap that energy
while yet there's time (I'm cold, you see)
I whine to Sturm und Drang it free
from summer seed to basking tree
I whine in protest to the cold
that cloaks me deathlike -- I'm too bold!
I'll moan and whine and growl and fold
the blankets higher 'round my gold
I'll whine and bite and slap and fight
off frigid Winter's ever-night
I'll struggle and in the effort find
I've kindled fire limb-by-line
That fire warming joint and meat
I'm bristling now -- there's no retreat
I'm fighting, fighting all the time
Oh, now I know just why I whine!
Thank you, Robert Service.
