As winter was close

As winter was close

Ana put on her coat

The fur coat that mother gave her

A pot of tea stood boiling on the stove

She took it off to cool down

And shut the door behind her

She had a smoke

Puffed her cigarette

The lake was frozen

Ana walked there and tapped her foot

The ice was thick

Not thick enough to walk on it

Ana got back to the porch

She took four pieces of chopped wood

Then put them directly into the stove

She didn’t take off the coat

She was still feeling cold

As winter was close
