Stay the Course and Keep the Path in Sight

winter pathToday I walk alone down winter’s road of snow,
Cold wind against my back, strong as winds can blow.
Brambles to the left and brambles to the right.
No option but to stay the course and keep the path in sight.

Another mile or so and soon I’ll find
Welcome home around familiar bend of mind—
Blazing fire awaits to warm my frozen feet,
Hot cider mulled with spice to make it taste more sweet.

Beauty of a snowy day makes walks like this abide
Within the heart and soul, to take the world in stride.
May angels of dark nights of winter’s slippery bliss
Protect all those who venture forth so nothing goes amiss.
