Air of the Winter Shore

Winter Afternoon Walk at Snug Harbor Light

Beneath the watchful gaze of stone, we tread,
Where sunlight paints the lighthouse gold and red.
No fiery beam yet pierces twilight's hold,
But winter's touch makes ocean waters cold.

The trees stand stark, their summer robes laid down,
Except the timeless pines, with needles crowned.
The sky, a vast expanse of sapphire bright,
Reflects in depths where ocean chills the light.

Waves tidal brushes on the frosted sand,
Each gentle touch a footprint in the land.
Our breath plumes up like smoke against the blue,
Two pilgrims here, where sky and ocean grew.

Though winds may bite and waves may churn and foam,
A peace profound makes this our sacred home.
For even winter's breath, and skies so vast,
Hold counsel of a hope that will forever last.

So side by side, we walk along the shore,
And find in barren boughs, and skies that soar,
A beauty stark, a truth within our reach,
A testament to life along the beach.
