“Why not shrug at winter’s chill
Sing out loud, wow the crowd
Wearing red, plump with daring?”
Let less courageous smirking souls
Shiver, turn away uncaring
That each season’s treasure delivered
Shouldn’t be missed, disdained as cold kiss…
Too pale, unnoticed, hoarfrost white
Too soon bored, the passing throngs
Who forget first snow’s sun-tipped luster
And need a wake-up from wearied light…
“Why not dazzle their downcast eyes?!”
Shout crimson-scarlet berries bright.
