The cold.

/kʲa kɛ mãˈⁿka oːˈpʲe/
kya ke manka opye
IMP O old embrace
Embrace the cold!


let us be bold
within the cold
hope for the warm
to be our norm
let the hot
not cause us to rot

the eye of winter opens but for a moment
let it look upon you and teach you
the love you have for the warmth of the sun
will fuel your fortitude
no matter your latitude
