  My Poems  

With Me Dwell

A chain verse by Beverly Stock.

To dwell with me, you must know

Know I dislike winter’s snow

Snow that makes it hard to breathe

Breathe in cold, inhale and freeze

Freeze the body and the soul

Soul that aches for warming cure

Cure is best in open arms

Arms held open bring you in

In my heart with me remain

Remain inside, let snow pass

Pass this test and with me dwell

Dwell not near snow, now you know.

Beverly Stock was inspired to pen this Chain Verse after surviving a -35 degree wind chill during the January 2019 Arctic Vortex In the Midwest. A Chain Verse is the linking together of stanzas. The repetition of a word from a verse following the next creates a chainlike connection between the lines.


Beverly Stock is an American poet living in St. Louis. Her work has been published on ClassicalPoets.org, at theChainedMuse.com, and on the Webzine Lighten Up Online.
