A Second Hand Story

I posted this poem months ago and thought, as a chill drapes Northern New Jersey, I’d post it again. Yes, it’s cold!

The poem takes its inspiration from dwarven songs JRR Tolkien penned for his novel The Hobbit.

The pine boughs bend
with winter’s snow;
beneath their reach
cold darkness folds.

The forest’s heart
so deep, unseen –
where eye and fang
are sharp and keen,

but take this step
toward the unknown.
The cold, dark waits
for I’m its own.
