The promise of Winter is not far away;

the nights are getting darker, there is a definite chill in the air;

I don't care too much for Winter this I have to say.

When Winter is here I long for bright and sunny days.

"This Winter weather is very wicked", my best friend used to often tell me;

as we trudged through the snow and ice on the cold and lonely streets.

There is not many a friend to be found.

We look at each other and then look at the ground.

Before you know it the Festive Season will be upon us;

but alas for me the true meaning of it has all but turned to dust.

People hustling and bustling. Here, there and everywhere;

no time to even smile.

Some look mean, others just look full of intent.

Yes, these are the familiar traits of a Winter of Discontent.
