Winter arrives

Spread the love

From sparkling frost to deepest snow;
Echo: Now
We whisper when the wild winds blow.
Echo: Low

Subtle a sweetness witnessed in sun;
Echo: Come
And ripples on the stream gaily run.
Echo: Rum

These thoughts are seeds that rise to action;
Echo: Fraction
To ease our hearts of woe impassioned.
Echo: Ashen

At length, the hidden moon in clouds arose;
Echo: Rose
For each succeeding day now longer grows
Echo: Bows

On fields in leagues of beauty spread;
Echo: Said
When twilight clad in sable red.
Echo: Led

We wallow in joy both day and night;
Echo: Quite
The season’s a vision of pure delight.
Echo: Light

    A lovely echo of winter’s delight specially when the hidden moon rises ~ In reality, I dread its coming as winter here is long and depressing ~

    Beautiful…I was beginning to think I was the only one at dVerse with snow. I really liked the use of the Echo form for this poem. Reading these make me want to write more.

    Lovely imagery of the sparkling frost, wild winds blowing, ripples on the stream and the fields clad in sable red. Sounds divine. I like that Echo form too…will have to give that a try!

    Visiting your poem again, Sanaa. Once more really enjoyed its expression of joy & also the beautiful way you executed the ‘echo’ form!

    If there could be such joy… but winter is also weight of lead.. of gray dismay… If just a little sparkling white could kiss the trees I would smile.

    “If winter comes, can spring be far behind?” I think we should delight at every changing season for each one has its charm and purpose. I like the use of echoes in this piece Sanaa.
