A Windy Winter: A Poem

Updated on January 7, 2014
Source


The wind whispers and whistles,

Wafting pleasant aromas through the midnight garden,

The silvery moon watches over the scene below,

Putting a glowing spotlight on the wintry woods,

Bleak and bare, the trees stand as a high-walled fortress,

Guarding the garden full of frosted grass,

Waiting for springtime blooms when the warmth returns.

      Ebower,

      Interesting that I should read this right after my coldest day. As I read each line could feel it, or see it.

      Pamela is correct, very good use of alliteration. You have made good use of sound, feeling and imagery; pulls the reader into the poem and elicits feeling and pictures.
