    Jack Frost

    Jack Frost came dancing through
    Snow white with eyes of blue

    Everyplace that he did caress
    The white frost did possess

    Spreading out in many a tendril
    Going where ever it will

    Across the field once so green
    Now covered in an icy sheen

    Up across the barn and around
    Until it covered all the ground

    Capricious he turned and went
    Leaving the frost he’d lent

    I watched his cold rambling path
    Which heralds winters icy wrath

    He dashed off through the trees
    Where his dire frost did seize

    Making the golden leaves shiver
    With each touch he did deliver

    Up the hill along the first ridge
    Then down through the covered bridge

    Then he was gone out of sight
    Leaving a trail of silvery white

    That Jack Frost is omniscient. A profound and cold write that sets the stage for winter. ginga

    Shimmery images of frost covered days to be warmed by cocoa and loves glow... Very nice!

    KLF commented on Jack Frost


    Beautiful. The imagery is great and reminiscent of another Frost that is one of my favorite reads. The rhythm is great and form too.

    Very nice, totally captivated me! You did a wonderful job painting a picture for me that I was able to see and understand, and most of all ENJOY! Great Job!

    wonderful imagery! love how you followed the path of Jack Frost! You have a wonderful way with words, thanks for sharing!

    When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

    John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
