Maples Crying



Many are the Maples that encircle my home, my nest, my dwelling abode
And in the dark of night they tap on my frosty windows, crying
Past their deathly stance, a wintry scene 
Looking through their tangled limbs snow is falling, endlessly
Everything in my world is icy white, sky and earth mingling
Soon, I whisper to them, you will be wearing your emerald gowns

Creaking and groaning they mumble in their frozen rest
Reaching out gnarled fingers to me
Yes, my dears, soon, so soon you will stand in resplendence
Ice and snow will be replaced with fringes of delicate, filigree green
Now rest, now sleep Maples sweet
Gather your memories of Spring, Summer and Fall close and dream

    Bravo! Constance an exceptional Acrostic. Words of imagery is so great, and the feeling of winer conveyed too cold, but the fingers of delicate, filigree green leaves will soon to be rebirth. Warm, Smiles, Coonie

    Hullo, Constance. You did a great job with this acrostic, the imagery is full, and the emotive personification was lovely to read. I have always enjoyed when trees are personified. I hope that you are feeling better.
