City Lights and Cold in January

by Avi Green

By shimmering light at 5 o’ clock,
We see the sun set in the distance.
Short is the day in a winter of Zion,
When the leaves turn from green to yellow with season’s change.

You find it an early time for bleakness and cold,
To come upon your city’s fold,
Whence there had been a warm summertime,
There cometh now snow and rain divine.

T’will get better, time will come,
That warmth will comeback,
And leave winter none.
The days are short, but in months will grow,
And warmth will come again, thou shalt know.
