August

How far away does August seem
From January’s bleak embrace?
Those neverending nights and life
That moves much faster in the light
Feel distant like a foreign war
A world that I have never seen.
Yet every year when it returns
I welcome it with open arms.
My heart concedes defeat and lets
The sun in to defrost its veins
Despite the fact that it knows well
It cannot keep its pleasant warmth.
