Solstice

Today Winter turned and started to walk away
She has served her purpose for another year
Sent animals into hibernation to conserve food
Whittled back plants and vegetation
Killed bacteria and germs thriving in warmth
Bread illnesses to build immune systems
Withered the grass to make it strong again
She walks slowly in the opposite direction
Still ruling over our weather for a few months
Winds will come to give her a gusty farewell
She departs toward the north
Leaving living to begin again
