A Gift for Winter Solstice

As we are battered by bitter winter winds that power penetrating rain with streaks of slushy snow I have a gentle offering penned by Vancouver Island poet Leanne Boschman.  I found this in the Times Colonist a few years ago and as years went by I meant to post it here to celebrate the Solstice but managed to remember too late. I filed the clipping properly this time around and somehow it seems particularily appropriate this year to be able to offer poetic comfort in these hurtful days as we draw ourselves closer to home and those we love and let the season draw to its cold conclusion.
