Winter

I wanted to stretch myself with a different type of poem. This one is highly structured– each line has a certain number of letters (not including punctuation). Each line ascends one character at a time up to eight letters, then descends back down to one letter.

 

I
by
the
fire
pause–
lonely,
pensive,
clumsily
thawing
frozen
heart;
numb
owl
am
I
