Message For An Old Cold Man

November was not all that bad. We had Thanksgiving feasts and very little snow. The Yuletide season came. Since it was glad, I felt so sad to see December go. But January so far we have seen cars sliding off the roads and freezing cold. Blue skies I need and white replaced by green and sunshine spilling onto fields like gold. But Winter still persists. Up and about, he's freezing pipes, car engines and my toes! That old cold man has worn his welcome out. And next month's Valentines? Well, who needs those? It's Goddess Spring that I am waiting on. Why hang around, old Winter? Just begone! Written 1/19/13 For the Winter Begone Poetry Contest of Francine Roberts

    Amen, Andrea, you told old winter what we all feel, excellent. I enjoyed this sonnet.

    Winter can be a lot like a grumpy old man... wanting everyone to feel as cold as he! Nice personification... I especially liked the references to Valentines... I, myself, think of it as kind of a ridiculous holiday.

    Very touching excellent poem written by a very good poet. I saw that you view another poet named Margherita Russo she's only 14 and I know it would mean alot for her to have you read her newest poem if you have the time. Thank you very much.

    Ole man winter, he's a burly soul. On everything, he takes his toll. But please don't let him have your heart. For valentines day is for all who take part. So Mrs. Springtime, we wait for you. You always remind us that love is for two. :)
