Wonders of Winter

Look up!  Snowflakes appear in streetlights
   Hear children cheer as snow days are announced
Watch the powder fly during snowball fights
   Listen as faith through joyful hymns is pronounced
   Join snow angel brigades while on wintery landscapes we pounce

Walk briskly with me through the winter woods
   Where boughs of evergreens droop with white frost
Don your boots and pull up your jacket hood
   Let’s slide on the lake until our energies exhaust
   Then trudge back home as snow drifts are crossed

Place damp clothes on a chair by the fireside
   Pour a glass of wine and snuggle with me
Whispers of passion, ‘neath a blanket confide
   Lights from the fir tree fill our hearts with glee
   As you offer me your ring on bended knee

    Winter is sure to get prettier with a welcome as this. Thanks for taking the time out for reading and commenting on my poem "sky", i'd would lile to point out that you have spelt my name wrong, i am not "Randy" it is "Rinki Nandy". Wish i could see some snow too and write something in it's honour. Best wishes to you...Rinki Nandy.

    Hi Carolyn! Enjoyed this winter poem of yours, so well written! Yes, I hope you'll get to see the Andes one day. When flying from Santiago de Chile to Osorno in the South we had always the Andean peaks on our left, a great picture indeed, now 14 years ago! Wish you best of luck for Carol's contest!...Love, Gert
