Struggle Between Hot And Cold

For some reason it’s colder out here
In my study than it is outdoors.
People who see me walk down the sidewalk
From the house to here must think me
Greatly overdressed for it IS often warmer outside
Than my cold quarters here would ever suggest.

As I step over the threshold
And shut the door behind me,
I think for a second that I feel
A small draft of cold air strike me
Before I realize that it’s me who’s
Brought a small draft of warmth inside
And if there’s any struggle, this heat I bear will lose.
