Shortened Days 2008

      Shortened Days

December days

In Gothenburg.

By solstice,

Darkness

Will have crept,

Leapt

Upon rays,

Held, kept down the rays

To twenty after three.

How subtle the activity

That minimizes hours

By the seconds,

Influence and powers

That keep skies gray mute.

One lies,

Instead of

Sitting,

Sits,

Instead of walking, yet by Christmas

Light is everywhere.

Cars stop, we stare

From house to shop,

Shortness compensated for.
