My Winter Love

When the bitter southern wind

Cuts its teeth upon the razor edged buildings

And the winter children

Scamper with dogs to secret places;

When the brisk Australian air

Hangs in blades about my tongue and throat-

Then I will remember my winter love

And how the tang of that season

Crept in layers about us

As we lay content and lush

In the juices of our love

Exalting within the thin borders of our world.
