December's Barn

Brown shingles whisper the seasons tale,
White doors a canvas for winter's veil.
Gray skies hold a promise of snow,
A rooster weathervane points where winds blow.
A sign adds a splash of color, bright,
As the year prepares to take flight.

A Barn in December

The barn stands tall, a building of brown,
Against the gray December skies that frown.
Its weathered shingles, like a patchwork quilt,
Tell tales of summers long and winters spilt.

No snow has fallen yet, though soon it must,
The grass, a canvas brown with hints of rust.
The white doors gleam, adorned with simple wreath,
A promise whispered on the brink of death.

A crowing rooster, from the cupola high,
His feathered banner painted on the sky.
He sees the world in monochrome so stark,
Yet sings a song of hope within the dark.

The sign beside the barn, a splash of red,
Reminds us life endures, though winter's spread.
A promise whispered on the barren ground,
Of spring's return, a vibrant, verdant crown.

So let us stand, like steadfast barn and tree,
And face the winter's chill with dignity.
For though the days are short and cold and gray,
The sun will rise again, come what may.
