Winter's Memory

Winter’s Memory Winter’s memory unfolds Through spring days that still grow cold Through petals already in bloom That holds onto a snowflake or two Winter’s memory still rests Upon Robins still hibernating in their nests Upon the burnt embers that remain on the ground From past flames that spring raindrops had drowned Winter’s memory is shown Through nature’s cycle still not fully grown Mother Nature’s way of inviting the winter season To come back for a reason Winter’s memory remains In snowflakes transformed into spring rain That created a window that fogged from a season once there That still left its chill in the air

    this is a very well crafted poem, Gail. I love how you worked burnt embers into this one. Was it a model for your contest? Love this.
