out in the cold a winter's blast

the 12 given words:
bones keep play end valley stars 
find cold winter dome  love limber 

make no bones about it
keep it in play strive to no end
in the valley of stars do they meet
easy partners they hope to find

out in the cold a winter's blast
the year to end nothing left undone
the strong and lively made to outlast
the tough with strength enhanced

dome of love set to limber and dance
to provoke and harness many movements
appearing brightly opaque in a glance
to spread out wide as healthy elements

  10. Beautiful vivid winter poem, the actions and the imperatives of years end swirl like a winter flurry in this. ❄️
