    Poem Commentary

    I wrote this in English when we went outside.

    White Forest

    We walked,
    holding hands,
    fingers weaved,
    through a forest of white.
    My scarf wrapped tight around my neck,
    coiling, constricting,
    the warmth was so inviting.
    The wool from his gloves,
    rubbed against the wool from mine.
    The forest was quiet
    as snow compacted and crunched
    under our wandering feet.
    My breath crept out and rose before me.
    And we didn't say a word.
    The snow glistened delicately,
    every sparkle adding to my imagination.
    Black branches sagged with the weight of heavy snow.
    And sharp ice cycles glimmered and dripped in the faint sun.
    All we needed was each other,
    and that's a good thing,
    because that was all we had.

    Very Nice !! Sometimes holding hands is all you need, and beautiful scenery always adds to a special moment like that. Koolmom



    Thank you very much. I'm glad you read it.

    Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

    Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
