Winter in my garden

Winter in my Garden

Soft snow has fallen fresh and clean in my garden,
And white draped hedgerows stand serene in my garden.

In tall pine trees, nuts honeyed sweet, a winter treat,
For squirrels, birds and beasts unseen in my garden.

An urban fox, wending his way, this freezing day,
Leaves prints to show where paws have been in my garden.

And on the white, the eye will catch, a darker patch,
‘tis snowdrops showing tips of green in my garden.

A pale gold sun like razor slice, cuts diamond ice,
to light this charming winter scene in my garden

Ghazal The Ghazal has a refrain of one to three words that repeat, 
and an inline rhyme that precedes the refrain.

    Sincere congratulations on your 1st place winning Ghazal! I am amazed at the detailed imagery you were able to pull off, while still staying true to form. Really like the imagery and structure of, 'A pale gold sun like razor slice, cuts diamond ice.' Excellent. Chris.

    Out of all the entries received in my contest " The Ghazal" your poem was one of a select few that followed the inline rhyme and refrain.... All entries were good and difficult to judge, but your stood out as #1.... Congratulations on your first place rank.... Pat yourself on the back my dear... You deserve it..... I look forward to reading more from you in my future contests......:JP]

    Of almost all the ones I read besides my own of course(I am so modest) this is one of the few that I REALLY enjoyed reading. It is very easy to understand and pure enjoyment!! If you do not score high (and I hope me too) then I just don't get it! Luv, Andrea
