Christina: White Winter Lane
"Derbyshire Lane in Winter" - Watercolour by Geoff Kersey


There's a hush in the lane
by my cottage,
a silence all over the town;
for all of the sound has been muted
by the blizzard of snow coming down.
Suddenly, the silence is broken
by the children who live in the lane -
laughing, at play, in a white wonderland
while I smile through
my frosty glass pane.
