"Winter Evening" by Edward Williams‘Winter Whispers’ by Carter Davis Johnson The Society November 10, 2017 Beauty, Poetry 3 Comments Upon a winter’s evening, The sun sits out of sight, While all the stars are dreaming, I peer into the night. My footsteps slowly falling, The silence they do break. I hear a soft voice calling, A voice, a voice opaque. I bend my ear to listen. What do the whispers say? The moonlight twirls and glistens, While fighting off the day. The voice grows ever bolder. At last I know who lends. A warmth begins to smolder. I’ll hold her once again.
