When the snows came

The world had to shift


As the world ran dark

Beneath northern lights

The tidy paths

Of cities

Cracked under the pressure

Of ice

The world sought

To reclaim her own

As mankind

Made his retreat

To regroup

In the spring thaw

A new plan began

To turn it all around

To restore all

Winter had stripped away

The streetlights shine

Outside doorways

Covered over

By buildings

Our answer to snow

And fending off the darkness

Bringing our outside life

Back inside

Living within

A different warmth – Caroline A. Slee

Turned Around
