Do You Hear What I Hear

Hail beats against the window,
Wind howls on without remorse.
Do you hear what I hear?
Winter's voice is blithely hoarse.  
Trees are glazed with icing snow, 
Panes are veiled with frosted lace. 
Do you see what I see?
Winter's face is full of grace.

Pine pours spice into the air,
Ginger floats in gentle wafts.  
Do you smell what I smell?
Winter's perfume - fresh and soft.

The hearth is bright with fire.  
The chilly night brews up a storm.  
Do you feel what I feel?
My darling keeps me safe and warm.

    I just LOVE the direction you took this theme. Why didn't I think of this one. I am puzzling and puzzling like that stupid Grinch on top of Mt. Crumpet!!! HOpefully I will figure this one out before the contest closes!!

    Thank you, Andrea! You are always so encouraging! There are worse things to be than the Grinch :) (My favourite Christmas movie!!) Good luck with your poem - It looks like there are plenty of spaces left in the contest, so you've got lots of time!
