Winter Begone

Old man winter hear my plea.
Your ice cold breath chills me so.
Oh, how my blood runs ice cold.
My fingers and toes are never warm.

A story, a legend or a myth,
Shadow or not - winter begone.

Ok, technically winter just begun.
Dreaming of the first sign of spring.
Feeling the renewal in your heart.
Breathing energy filled with warmth.
As you breathe, feel the inner flow.

Spring is the season of rebirth.
Flowers pop-up their heads,
And trees begin their leaf.
Old man winter begone.
In my mind I imagine it's so.

    Not much snow, most has melted with the warm up we had for a couple of days. But it's breath freezing today. It's a snuggle day that's for sure. Thanks for your comment on my poem. Make a Snow man with a big Warm Smile, Connie

    I would like to see winter be gone as well, but it's got to be there just like the other seasons. Good write.

    Your absolutely right Robert, but one can take a spring-break mentally if one desires to. Thank you for your comment my friend. Warm Smiles, Connie

    I imagine that Spring will have to be in your imagination for some time now as winter has a stranglehold on all of us now! Your imagination can contain all things Spring just like you have stated here within your awesome poem of yours! You have written a splendid and wondrous piece, Great Work!!

    Thank you Russell for your lovely comment. My heart is filled with spring, warm breeze, early spring flowers, sweet rain and sunshine, but my body is freezing, wrapped in many layers of clothes to keep me warm. Warm Smiles, Connie
