The Battle of Early Winter

The cold has got me beat, for now:
Placed me under house arrest,
Doomed to domesticity,
Helpless to hibernation.
Someday I shall brave it:
Wearing ten layers of armor,
I will bear it all! I will
Go any way my boots direct.
Until that triumphant day
I have tactically retreated indoors
Compelled to coziness -
But not entirely defeated.
