Northern promises

The wind of winter shan't forgive tonight 
It bellows at the icy windows bare  
The bower leans and twists in such a fright 
That not a creature shall take shelter there 

The rustling of spring has turned away 
Her love withdrawn from each forgotten glen 
They toil in their rows of brown and gray 
And whimper for her gentle touch again 

See now a gentle glow upon the frost  
Convince the evening star to light the day
The hope of every field shall not be lost 
There will be life where there was once decay 

A season is a virtue of the year 
All that was far away at once is near

    Jeremy, what you did today, seeing my Clara's Light sonnet, made me wonder something. Did you find that poem by clicking on Forms, at my poetry page? I had never realized we could do this at another poet's page (I only used that function in MY POEMS area) Thanks to your making me think about it, I now know that I can simply click on forms and see how many of a form each member has written. I am loving that Soup feature.

    This sonnet is sensational, Jeremy! I really love the last line of the third stanza. You are very good at incorporating vivid imagery into your poems! Well done. You are talented. :)

    wonderful, Jeremy. ARe you the same poet I praised for a sonnet that I read lately here at Soup? I will have to look and see if you were the one. Keep it up. You are quite good with this form.

    It's a difficult but rewarding form, I'm going to try to conjure up some different themes for the next couple I write.
