    Winter

    I saw her dancing today all fair and bright
    Across snow clad fields in full sunlight
    Her name is winter this I know
    She breathes frost and is made from ice and snow
    Single minded, pure will shows on her face
    And wary I am of her cold embrace

    I heard her howl all through the night
    The house groaned and flickered the light
    Wolves accompanied when she sank low
    Only to rise again with the next wind blow
    Round and round at a terrible pace
    Through window dark winters dire face

    I saw her cover the sky and dim the light
    Sending forth snowflakes in their slow flight
    There is something to freshly fallen snow
    Making the moments last and slow
    Winter makes such lovely brittle lace
    And why in my heart for winter there will always be a place

    winter, How did I miss this poem after your namesake? Incredible metaphors, and ohh so vivid I shiver here in late summer as I read! ty for the white crispness on a summer's day? ginga

    Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
