Cold Moons Of Winter – Pete Crowther

(The moons of December, January 
and February were once known by our 
forebears respectively as Long Night or 
Cold Moon, Wolf or Storm Moon, and Snow Moon) 

Cold moons of winter 
The wolf and the storm 
Ice crystals splinter 
The long night is born 
Grey shadows lope 
Over the snow 
Yet still there is hope 
Though fires burn low.
