The Hounds of Winter

a poem by Stefanie Vega

The hounds of winter follow
You sense them in your bone
The howling prayer
On icy air
Is fate you face alone.

The hounds of winter stalk
Your bones their sacred prize
Their fatal bite
in coldest light
Will lead to your demise.

The hounds of winter cast a spell
Their chant, a haunting rhyme...
of faerie flight on Christmas night
beyond this mortal time.
