Poem - Real Feeling Of Winter

Updated on October 22, 2012

Soothing flakes that fall around,
Sensation of whiteness winter bound.
Softly touches the hands of time,
Slows down every bells and chimes.

Over the hills of snowy dunes,
On white satin and silvery moons,
Ocean's dark abyss and fallen sky,
Ode to the shivering life that passes by..

Follow the silver trail of a winter land,
Flowing through the rivers and hidden sand.
Forcing the sweat from every able man,
Freezing moments, taking a chance.

The wind that blows the droplet of icy glitters,
To the land of sweet and feeling bitter.
Throw the life's turns to the ashes of old,
Taste the chilly touch of the hands of cold.

Letting the memories of warmth slip by,
Leaving the life of the mortal and fly,
Lonely eagle deplore its call up high,
Lowering its wings at the humble cry.

Yell to the sound of the Northern groan,
Yet there is no sound of the forest's moan.
Yeld fields of strong once grown,
You have no sense of the sounds that roam.

SOFTLY, the presence of winter takes over
SOFTLY the world goes under its cover.....

      What a beauty this is. What I love about winter snows is that the world becomes quiet but the snow, if you listen, is quite vocal. That feeling was captured in this poem so well. Love it!

      I wish winter would softly appear here some day! :) Instead, we see monsoon rains and then a big plop of snow......I loved this poem; it reminds me of the two years I lived in Vermont. Wonderful job my friend!

      And the crunching of snow under one's boot

      slip and fall down, on your tail you will scoot

      for winter plays tricks upon those who shiver

      stalls cars, spins wheels, no pizza will deliver!

      Lizzy, you've brought up one of my fav times of the year. And once again, you've done it with beauty and skill. Let me light a candle and warm my feet by its fire. Great Job!

      ...lovely evocative writing although it reminds me sadly (lol) of November - the gateway month to winter as I refer to it - usually by December though I am used to the idea of winter but in November

      I am still in denial .....(I could see a video in my mind from your words and that's great writing) sending you sincere warm wishes from lake erie time 11:15am with Baroque music and last cup of coffee for the day

      Lol, @Epi!! I know what you mean..... I lived in northen Maine for few years...... Winter never ends! The feeling of being locked up in that icy place..... But I also remember the beautiful snow covered fields, and roads with crystal trees sparkling in the sun!! '..... Sleigh bells ring, are you listening....', LOL

      Always love to see you here, and thank you for the wonderful comment! Looking for the coffee.... You got me in the mood :))

      "Over the hills of snowy dunes,

      On white satin and silvery moons,

      Ocean's dark abyss and fallen sky,

      Ode to the shivering life that passes by.."

      Your wonderful words take the chill out of winter.

      Voted up and away

      Take care :)

      Hello,

      Such a beautiful description of a winter wonderland. You captured it with such beauty and grace.

      I loved these lines...

      "The wind that blows the droplet of icy glitters,

      To the land of sweet and feeling bitter.

      Throw the life's turns to the ashes of old,

      Taste the chilly touch of the hands of cold."

      Thank you. Will share for sure. Great job.

      Hugs,

      Sunnie
