    “A Cool Winter’s Night” Free Verse by Athanasios Pallas

    Once on a cool winter night

    I sat by the fire

    Reading my book with delight,

    How I loved the letters

    The pages

    The smell of ink as I flipped through each chapter

    One after the other

    Until the pages ended.

    And I look out to the window,

    Watching the snow fall with contemptment

    I rise from my chair and walked towards

    The window,

    As I looked out I saw the snow fall

    And fall and fall.

    The night was warm and happy,

    And I as light as air,

    Filled with peace of mind

    In my swirling thoughts.
