Cold, Concrete Poem, Anaphora/Epistrophe

It’s the middle
Of the night
My toes are
Cold, so cold
I flipped the cover down
To cover them
Because they were
Cold, so cold
I tucked them in
In the pocket I made
But they were still
Cold, so cold
I twisted and turned
To warm them
But they were still
Cold, so cold

They never warmed
I can’t sleep in socks

  1. Brrr! Winter is perpetually cold fingers and toes. Good job!

    This is a poem that, through repetition and detail, teaches about the cold. Especially when we might not be feeling it (yet). Personally, I take comfort in the mention about not being able to sleep in socks. Neither can I. Thanks!

      We’re not feeling it here yet, but air conditioning is enough to freeze my toes at night, even when it’s set at a reasonable temp. Thanks!
