dark and cold, wet and grey
these are the traits that you display.
wind, rain, hail and snow
you inhibit anything to grow.

miserable and dark, you love your art
on and on you”ll march
you”ll be hated, cursed and debated 
and yet you”ll have your way.

when your time is up, your portfolio fulfilled
when you have to give way
you will be followed by lovely spring 
all will be gay.

days will be filled with song and dance and summer nights seem endless.
harmonious sounds of birds and bees even flowers seem to dance.
all will be good we”ll jump with joy but how soon we”ll forget 
that days from now you will return and only shadows will be left.

    I don't much like winter myself. Ours is not too harsh though, since I live in a Mediterranean region. I've never seen snow in my life and would never want to. I like your descriptive language. Licia :-)
